  1. The name of the ECA branch with a letter F, B, L, or R in bracket shows the horizontal position between the branch origin and catheter tip. Moreover, in both case A and B, the origin of LA, FA and OA located at angle with about 90 in distal view (Fig. 2). Each model has three names except models with horizontal position “C” or vertical position “Class 4″. For instance, LA (F), OA (R), and FA (L) mean the same horizontal catheter position in each class
  2. ICA internal carotid artery, FA facial artery, LA lingual artery, MA maxillary artery, OA occipital artery, SThA superior thyroid artery
