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.

Stations 3a and 3p. (A) The upper border of station 3a and 3p is the apex of chest (blue arrows) and lower border is the level of carina (yellow arrow). (B) The anterior border of 3a is the posterior aspect of the sternum, and the posterior border is the anterior border of the superior vena cava on the right and left carotid artery on the left. Station 3p is a retrotracheal lymph node. LCA: left common carotid artery; LIV: left innominate vein; SVC: superior vena cava.
