Common Carotid Circle Willis

Figure 3-7. Anteroposterior aortogram of the thorax. Injection of contrast dye into the right subclavian artery shows the entire circle of Willis because the dye enters both the right common carotid and right vertebral arteries. However, injection of contrast dye into the left subclavian artery shows only the posterior part of the circle of Willis because the dye enters only the left vertebral artery. 1. Right vertebral artery. 2. Right common carotid artery. 3. Inferior thyroid artery. 4. Transverse cervical artery. 5. Right subclavian artery. 6. Axillary artery. 7. Subscapular artery. 8. Internal thoracic artery. 9. Brachiocephalic trunk. 10. Aortic arch. 11. Ascending aorta. 12. Left common carotid artery. 13. Left vertebral artery. 14. Left subclavian artery. 15. Thoracoacromial artery. 16. Thoracic aorta. 17. Intercostal arteries. (Reprinted with permission from Fleckenstein P, Tranum-Jensen J: Anatomy in Diagnostic Imaging.
