computed tomography and magnetic resonance are useful imaging methods in patients with suspicion of carotidynia syndrome.
Imaging findings consistent in abnormal soft tissue surrounding the carotid bifurcation in the appropiate clinical context along with the lack of any finding suggesting alternative diagnoses support the existence of a structural substracte for this clinical entity.
To avoid unnecessary examinations,
the radiologist should become familiar with the clinical and radiological features of carotidynia syndrome.
These radiological features will be helpful in the evaluation of patients with suspected carotidynia syndrome.
