In brief: About 2 hours

Most myelograms are performed in a radiology facility by a radiologist trained in interventional procedures.
The procedure may involve a tilting radiology table, in order to investigate the flow of the injected dye. This procedure often includes a post-myelogram ct scan, allowing the radiologist to obtain information similar to that of a MRI scan.
