Comment
The common aorta runoff CTA images the abdominal aorta and lower extremity vessels. But there is also a study for evaluation of axillary-bifemoral bypass grafts that images both the thoracic and abdominal aorta plus the lower extremity vessels. This term was deprecated because it is ambiguous about which study it represents.
