Re: MRI w/ Contrast Dye
I've had a couple of those. They injected the dye into the vein in my arm. It was over in a second or two. For me they did some films and then the injection and some more films afterwards.
Just as a side note, in my case the dye did not do its job. For me it was supposed to differentiate scar tissue from disc material (mine was lumbar.) When they did surgery they found out that what they thought was disc material, was actually scar tissue. I guess this doesn't happen often at all and my doctor called this rare. But, I never knew it could happen; thought I would inform you about the possibility.
Don't let it discourage you, go ahead with the test; it can be a good one.
