OBJECTIVE: The objective of this article is to review the CT and MR angiography features of vascular injuries to the neck with special emphasis on the key diagnostic features of common and less common entities. CONCLUSION: CT and MR angiography are highly efficient for the diagnosis of most arterial and venous traumatic lesions in the acute setting and when patients develop delayed symptoms. Conventional angiography is recommended only for therapeutic purposes or when the diagnosis remains unclear after performing cross-sectional imaging techniques.
