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
