A cervical aortic arch is a rare vascular malformation that is characterized as a high positioned aortic arch, above the clavicle. The knowledge of its branching pattern is essential to characterize the entity further accurately. Noninvasive cross-sectional imaging, including computed tomography angiography or magnetic resonance angiography, is the imaging methods of choice. Due to highly complex anatomy, three-dimensional (3D) images help in providing improved anatomical visualization. Virtual reality is a relatively new computer-generated simulation technique that allows the interactive display of high-resolution models using a wearable headset and interactive controllers. We describe a rare form of a cervical arch and briefly discuss the latest methods of improved visualization using 3D virtual reality displays and smartphones.
