Yes!: CT enterography should allow for complete visualization of the abdominal aorta due imaging the same "compartment" as the target of the study--intestines.

Ct: CT angiogram is a the preferred method to visualize the aorta. Enterography is the visualization of the bowel. However if you are having a CT with IV and oral contrast this should take good look at aorta too?
