Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a devastating disease and although the virus would appear to have been contained, it is clear that the impact it has had around the world, and could have again in the future, is immense. Hong Kong has been significantly impacted in the recent SARS outbreak, and clinicians and researchers alike have gained a lot of experience in dealing with the disease at short notice. This new book aims to be a state-of-the art update on SARS, with particular reference to imaging, which plays a crucial role in the diagnosis, management and follow-up of patients with the disease (it is widely accepted that SARS patients cannot be managed without imaging and it is included in the WHO's own list of diagnostic criteria for the disease). The book will also provide a perspective on the treatment and experience of the disease outside Hong Kong.
