How long does the cervical spine mri with dye take?

C-spine MRI duration

Mri
Count on at least an hour or two for preparation for the study and time to do the study without and then with contrast. Add more time if you move during the study, for that will produce suboptimal (unreadable) images. If you suffer from claustrophobia, the doc can prescribe med for anxiety to relax you during the study.

Do I have to bring someone along, or can I drive after the cervical spine mri with dye?

Depends

Mri
The dye used for MRI should not affect your ability to drive. If you require sedation to tolerate the MRI you should have someone drive you home.
