Bottom Line: Accurate lymph node staging of lung cancer is crucial in determining optimal treatment plans and predicting patient outcome.Currently used lymph node maps have been reconciled to the internationally accepted International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) map published in the seventh edition of TNM classification system of malignant tumours.This article provides computed tomographic illustrations of the IASLC nodal map, to facilitate its application in day-to-day clinical practice in order to increase the appropriate classification in lung cancer staging.

ABSTRACT
Accurate lymph node staging of lung cancer is crucial in determining optimal treatment plans and predicting patient outcome. Currently used lymph node maps have been reconciled to the internationally accepted International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) map published in the seventh edition of TNM classification system of malignant tumours. This article provides computed tomographic illustrations of the IASLC nodal map, to facilitate its application in day-to-day clinical practice in order to increase the appropriate classification in lung cancer staging.

Station 1. (A) The upper border of station 1 is the lower margin of the cricoid cartilage (yellow arrow). The lower border is clavicles bilaterally (C), in the midline, the upper border of the manubrium (M). (B) The border between 1R and 1L is the midline of the trachea (dashed line). C: clavicle; CR: cricoid cartilage; HY: hyoid bone; M: manubrium; TH: thyroid cartilage.
