As new cases of sudden acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) continue to pop up around the globe, imagers in Asia are compiling what is known about the disease's presentation on clinical images.
The Hong Kong College of Radiologists will hold a scientific symposium, "SARS Imaging: Pneumonia, Atypical Pneumonia, and Pneumonia-like Conditions," on June 7th at the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine Jockey Club Building.

Among other topics, physicians will discuss the clinical utility of radiology in the management of SARS. The event, cosponsored by the Hong Kong Hospital Authority and the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine, is free of charge, and provides category A CME points. Information on this meeting is available at http://www.hkcr.org.

Clinical symptoms of SARS include high fever, chills, cough, difficult breathing, and myalgia. Patients presenting with these symptoms are likely to show positive results with either chest x-ray or CT. The findings, including the imaging protocol recommended by Chinese University of Hong Kong, are available at the Prince of Wales Web site at http://www.droid.cuhk.edu.hk.
