Does anyone know what anatomical structure does the Thoracic Aorta become the ABD aorta?
Also @ what structure does the common iliac become the Fem-pop?

for the most part your aorta has 4 part.

Ascending aorta= aorta segment coming out of the aortic valve till it starts to curve
Aortic arch = top curvature of the aorta
Thoracic aorta = first segment coming out of the aortic arch and heading down and away from the heart As the aorta cross throw the diaphragm it changes to the abdominal aorta

Abdominal aorta from diaphragm down to the iliac arch

Abdominal angiography is typically a image of the aorta just above the renal and down to the iliac arch

The external iliac changes to the femoral artery as the artery pass over the femoral head of the femur

hope this answers all your questions
