In brief: History&exam

Most migraines are diagnosed by the history and a normal neurological exam. Scans of the brain are usually not necessary.

If the neurological examination is abnormal, regardless of the "classicality" of the syndrome, imaging with MRI is advisable. The same is true for headaches which are always on the same side or if there are any prominent atypical symptoms.
