For us, complete study, means complete study, we interrogate the entire 
vessel as long as we can see it, just because be see an ostial stenosis we 
don't stop there, as there may also be stenosis in the mid or distal portion of 
the vessel, it would be a shame if the interventionalist opened the proximal 
artery and missed a more distal lesion.

additional data and views that are generally obtained in a complete renal 
artery study?  Thank you for any response.
