What areas are evaluated during a MRA for a splenic artery aneurysm? What other organs do they show like ovaries or colon?

In brief: Just blood vessels

The "a" in MRA stands for angiogram, so they are looking primarily at blood vessels.
While they might see the spleen, left kidney and some of your intestines and stomach it will not be in great detail. And unless they ordered the study to extend to your pelvis it will not show your ovaries or uterus
