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 6. (A) The upper border of station 6 is a line tangential to the upper border of the aortic arch and lower border is the lower border of aortic arch (green lines). (B) The anterior border of station 6 is the imaginary horizontal line extending from the anterior wall of the aortic arch (yellow line), which discriminates station 6 from station 3a. AoA: aortic arch.

Figure 6: Station 6. (A) The upper border of station 6 is a line tangential to the upper border of the aortic arch and lower border is the lower border of aortic arch (green lines). (B) The anterior border of station 6 is the imaginary horizontal line extending from the anterior wall of the aortic arch (yellow line), which discriminates station 6 from station 3a. AoA: aortic arch.

Mentions: Station 6 lymph nodes lie anterior and lateral to the ascending aorta and aortic arch (Figure 6). The anterior border of station 6 is the imaginary horizontal line extending from the anterior wall of the aortic arch (Figure 6B). In radiological staging it is not clinically important to differentiate stations 5 and 6, both of which lie in the aorto-pulmonary nodal region and differentiation does not affect staging.
