Depends on the part of the body. The head is 45-50 minutes. I’ve had lower back surgery and mri was about 45 minutes. I’ve had neck surgery and it was 45 minutes. I’ve had an mri of my stomach and colon took 40-45 minutes and just recent my pancreas which was 40-45. All with and without contrast. That only means they take pictures first before injecting the contrast.
I suffer severe drug allergies and thank god I’ve never had a problem with contrast, it’s not iodine or at all similar to CT Scan contrast. They put a wonderful styrofoam cushion under your knees to keep pressure off lower spine. I always ask for xtra blankets. Honestly it’s always been rather easy. I’ve had so many tests and procedures and this by far is one of the easiest. I only dislike because it’s loud. You’ll do great. The first of anything is always scary. It’s like that for me.
Hang in, Joanne

You certainly had enough mri on different posts of your body. Hope your doing well. Thank you
