How long will this test take?
A vascular study lasts anywhere between 30 minutes and one hour. How long the test takes depends on a few factors. For one thing, the length will vary depending on how easy it is to image the patient. You should arrive at least 15 minutes ahead of your scheduled appointment time to complete the necessary paperwork. You’ll also be able to ask questions in this block of time. Though the exam itself takes between 30 and 60 minutes, your doctor may ask you to stay for a few minutes after the procedure.
