In brief: Depends
Length of an MRI study depends on what area(s) of the body is/are being imaged, whether the study is done without & with contrast, whether any complications occur during the study (some people get very nauseated from contrast rapidly infused), whether you move during the study, how comfortable you are lying very still for several minutes, if there are unexpected reactions to the contrast.
