Test Results

When can I see my test results in myAurora?

Test results may be posted within a few hours or a few weeks, depending on the test. Once your test results are available for viewing, you’ll get an email stating that you have a new test result in your account.

Where can I see my test results?

  • Sign in to myAurora
  • In the top navigation bar, select Health > Test Results
  • You’ll see a list of all test results currently available for viewing
  • Select an individual test result to view more details about that test

If your tests were taken at a hospital, be sure to check the “Show Hospital Results” box on the main Test Results page.

What kind of test results are made available in myAurora?

Within your myAurora account, you’ll be able to view test results for:

  • Labs
  • Imaging results
  • Pathology/cytology results
  • OB procedures
  • X-rays, CAT scans and MRIs (text report only; images are not displayed)

The following types of test results are currently unavailable through myAurora:

  • Surgical pathology
  • HIV test results
  • Stress tests
  • Echocardiograms
  • Tests for Huntington’s disease
  • Procedures marked as "confidential"
  • Procedures from other electronic records

Is there a way to print more than one lab or test result at a time?

At this time, there is no way to print multiple lab results at one time. To print an individual result, select the result you want to print from the Test Results page (Health > Test Results). From there, click the printer icon in the upper right-hand corner of your screen.

Can I compare multiple lab values for the same test?

Yes. To compare multiple lab values:

  • Sign in to myAurora and go Health > Test Results
  • Choose the test you’d like to compare results for
  • From the test Details page, select the Past Results tab and/or the Graph of Past Results tab. The Past Results tab will show your past results as a table, while the Graph of Past Results will display your past test results as a graph.

When can I expect to see my X-ray results?

X-ray reports are not automatically released to myAurora until 14 days after the test is performed. This is to make sure your provider has time to review the results and contact you personally if need be.

Keep in mind that only the X-ray results will be available in myAurora. The image of the actual X-ray will not be displayed because myAurora does not support images at this time.

Why can't I see all of my test results in myAurora?

For legal reasons, some laboratory results cannot be released to you electronically. In addition, your provider may choose to communicate some or all of your test results directly due to the sensitivity of the results.

The following results are not released in myAurora:

  • Surgical pathology
  • HIV test results
  • Stress tests
  • Echocardiograms
  • Tests for Huntington’s disease
  • Procedures marked as "confidential"
  • Procedures from other electronic records

Why did I get the same test results more than once?

Your health care provider may add comments to your test results after they have been released to you. If this happens, you’ll receive the test result message again with the provider's new comments at the top.

How can I learn more about my test results?

  • Sign in to myAurora and go Health > Test Results
  • Click on the test you’d like to learn more about
  • In the top right corner, click on the green text that reads “Learn more about this test from the U.S. National Library of Medicine”
  • You’ll be taken to a third party site to learn more about your test

If you have additional questions about your test results, please contact your doctor.
