You could upload a demo page with no sensitive content on a public
server and post the URL. With the given information, the answer is "no,
you can't select an element on the basis of inner markup" (like an
attribute of a descendant), but perhaps the table as a whole gives an
idea of how the problem row might be referred to, without adding a class
attribute to it (the obvious solution, which is obviously not feasible

No. You could of course make the image disappear in rendering, but if
the other cell contains text, the row won't go away.

In CSS as currently defined and implemented, there's no way unless you
can modify the markup. Using client-side scripting, this would be fairly
easy, with the usual caveats, but I guess that if you could add
scripting, you could just as well add a class attribute.
