This book introduces the diagnosis of Emerging Infectious Diseases (EIDs),
including newly emerging infectious diseases and also infectious diseases that
show resistance to present treatments. Radiographic examinations are of great
value in EIDs diagnosis, differential diagnosis, treatment efficacy assessment
and prognosis evaluation. This book covers severe acute respiratory syndrome
(SARS), human avian influenza (H5N1, H7N9), influenza A (H1N1), hand-foot-mouth
disease, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), viral hepatitis, pulmonary
tuberculosis. All seven of these EIDs are associated with high incidence and
mortality. This book details the imaging techniques, radiological appearance
and characteristics of EIDs, and diagnosis and differential diagnosis of EID-related
complications. Considering the unique and in some cases only partially understood
nature of EIDs, appropriate space is provided in this book for the detailed
explanation of the etiology, epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical symptoms
and signs, laboratory tests, clinical diagnosis and differential diagnosis,
prevention, treatment, and prognosis of EIDs.
As such, it will be a valuable resource for improving the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of EIDs.
