Correct Answer Mnemonic for superficial branches of femoral artery

Hi all!
I want to share a mnemonics for superficial branches of femoral artery. These branches supply the lower abdomen.

The S in "EPICS" is for superficial and this word will come in front of every branch.
The EPI stands for epigastric
EP =external pudendal
IC = circumflex iliac
supperficial epigastric
superficial external pudendal
superficial circumflex iliac

*please note that superior epigastric and superficial epigastric are two different arteries.
Hope this helps!
