This lateral view of the neck with the patients nose to your left was obtained immediately after deployment of a stent in the internal carotid artery for treatment of carotid stenosis. The guide catheter is seen at the bottom of the image. The longer thinner structure is the guidewire which is kept through the region of stenosis and beyond to maintain access if further intervention is needed.
