Test results

Here you will find laboratory results for COVID-19 as well as other types of viruses and bacteria that can cause respiratory infections. Laboratory and radiology results from hospitals under the Western Norway Regional Health Authority (Helse Vest) may also be included.

Test results from Helse Vest hospitals

Helse Vest hospitals will show results of analyses in pathology (tissue and cell analyses) and descriptions of radiological examinations (e.g. X-rays and MRI, CT, and PET scans).

Tests ordered outside of Helse Vest hospitals will not be shown on Helsenorge (for example tests ordered by your GP, the home help service or other GP surgeries). This also applies if the test was taken at a hospital.

Test results for COVID-19

In addition to the result of the COVID-19 test, you will find the results of any other tests that have been performed. Rapid tests will also be shown here, even if you were told the result of them at the test centre.

Don't have a national ID number or D number?

If you do not have a national ID number or D number, you will not be able to log in and view your test results on Helsenorge. You must then agree with the testing sites how you will find out your test result.

Which viruses and bacteria do the results show?

Both viruses and bacteria can cause respiratory infections, and your doctor will sometimes order other analyses in addition to SARS-CoV-2. This is done to find out whether there could be a different explanation other than COVID-19 if you have symptoms that suggest COVID-19 infection. You will find the test results when you log in.

Overview of all relevant COVID-19-related analyses:

  • SARS-CoV-2. Virus detection in sample from nose and/or throat.
    • SARS-CoV-2 RNA: the virus’s genetic material
    • SARS-CoV-2 antigen: parts of virus molecules, normally detected via a rapid antigen test
  • SARS-CoV-2 antibodies. Antibodies against coronavirus are detected in a blood sample. If antibodies are detected in your sample, this indicates that you have previously been infected by the virus or that you have been vaccinated. Your GP must assess what this test result means for you. Examples of such analyses are:
    • SARS-CoV-2 antibodies
    • SARS-Cov-2 IgG
    • SARS-Cov-2 IgM
  • Influenza A/Influenza B
  • Parainfluenza virus
  • RS virus (respiratory syncytial virus)
  • Human metapneumovirus
  • Adenovirus
  • Rhinovirus
  • Mycoplasma pneumoniae
  • Chlamydia pneumoniae
  • Bordetella pertussis (whooping cough)
