Process hangs pinvoking AmsiScanBuffer from managed Code

I am attempting to use the AmsiScanBuffer function of the Windows Anti-Malware Service Interface from managed code, specifically C#. When attempting to call the method the program hangs on the call anytime a non-zero buffer length is provided. If a buffer length of 0 zero is provided then the method returns immediately with the HResult E_INVALIDARG. The other methods exposed by AMSI work as expected so I expect the I believe my dllimport for this function to be close but probably not completely correct. Besides the array copy approach represented here I have tried pinning the array and the behavior is identical.

C prototype

  _In_     HAMSICONTEXT amsiContext,
  _In_     PVOID        buffer,
  _In_     ULONG        length,
  _In_     LPCWSTR      contentName,
  _In_opt_ HAMSISESSION session,
  _Out_    AMSI_RESULT  *result

Managed Code

[DllImport("Amsi.dll", EntryPoint = "AmsiScanBuffer", CallingConvention = CallingConvention.StdCall)]
public static extern int ScanBuffer(IntPtr amsiContext, IntPtr ptr, ulong length, string contentName, IntPtr session, out int result);

var bytes = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(virus);
int sizet = Marshal.SizeOf(typeof(byte)) * bytes.Length;
var ptr = Marshal.AllocHGlobal(sizet);

    Marshal.Copy(bytes, 0, ptr, bytes.Length);
    int hr = Amsi.ScanBuffer(context, ptr, (ulong)sizet, "Unknown Data", session, out result);
