How long does it take for contrast dye to get out of your system?

IV contrast is usually excreted by the kidneys within the next 24 hours (assuming normal renal function). Oral contrast is usually excreted within a day or two, but in people with constipation it may not completely clear out for several days. There is no radiation in contrast used for CT.
