How long does it take to perform a CT scan?
The length of time it takes to perform an MRI varies depending on a number of factors, including the type of exam and size of the area being scanned. In most cases, a CT scan without intravenous contrast will take approximately 10 minutes. When IV contrast is used, it can take as long as 30 minutes to complete a CT scan.

Intravenous (IV) contrast is a harmless dye that makes it easier to view internal organs and blood vessels. It is essential for patients to inform their physician and technologist of any allergies. In rare cases, patients may have an allergic reaction to contrast dyes. If an allergic reaction happens, patients will receive immediate treatment.
