In brief: Depends

A good well qualified vascular technician can perform a complete carotid duplex in 15 minutes.
Some technicians take longer but can still do an excellent exam.

In brief: 30min-45min

It really depends on the extent of the exam. Overall it should not take more than 30min to 45 min.
No ivs. No needles. No contrast....Only gel on the skin and a probe.
