On May 30, 2003, SPRING Singapore, the National Metrology Centre for Singapore, held a special Conference to exchange information on the selection, testing and use of Infrared Thermal Imagers in performing mass detection of people with a slight fever (38 °C or higher) as a means to screen for possible SARS-infected persons.

The conference was intended to provide timely information on the state-of-the-art technology for human body temperature measurement and devices, especially thermal imaging systems, and the evaluation of such systems for fever detection, which is essential for SARS screening.  SIngapore has taken the lead in this area with a bold, aggressive effort to use the best available technilogy to help combat the spread of SARS. The meeting also was intended to provide the users and suppliers an opportunity for exchanging, updating and sharing information on various systems and their applications.

The Conference is over and the results or some summary opinion of its accomplishements and the next steps to be taken in this area are not yet available. Meanwhile here, below, are a copy of the contact information at SPRING SIngapore, a summary of the final programme and the downloadable visual presentation materials from the conference. This was all thoughtfully provided by SPRING on their Metrology Web Site.

This page was put on the Web on June 2, 2003, one day after the World Health Organization (WHO) declared Singapore safe for travellers and removed its recommended travel restrictions and caution notice.
