would pulsing in the ears suggest having a carotid artery sonogram?

Ear pulsing: A carotid lesion with transmission of flow feeling to the ears is possible so a carotid echo is reasonable. The symptom is not specific and lots of things could be related.

No: A carotid angiogram will not give you a cause for pulsing in the ears.
