In brief: About an hour

A discogram procedure typically takes up to one hour, depending on the anatomy and the physician performing the test.
Sometimes a ct scan is immediately peformed after the injections, which would add to the time expected to complete the whole study.

It usually takes no more than 30 minutes to perform the test.
Depending on the facility, the entire process might take an hour. After completion of the procedure, you might be asked to have a post disco gram ct scan. That can take an additional hour.
