What could cause peak systolic velocity of right internal carotid artery to be elevated to 130cm/s but no elevation in left ica & no stenosis found?

In brief: Peak velocity

Sometimes what is being recorded is not the velocity in the internal carotid but an adjacent artery such as external carotid .
This could also be related to high flow situations or other technical factors.

In brief: Normal curved artery

This can occur in some normal carotid arteries as well as some arteries that are more curved.
In the absence of plaque build up this would not be worrisome. Best regards!

In brief: Mild disease?

This could be mild narrowing of the right internal carotid, but in a 25 year old, this is more likely due to a kink in the vessel, and is normal.
