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.

Subcarinal zone: Station 7. (A) Upper and lower borders of station 7 are well identified on coronal image. (B) Station 7 nodes are noted in the space between the medial margin of both main bronchi (yellow lines) and nodes outside of the space are station 10. Station 7 extends posteriorly around the esophagus. AoA: aortic arch; BI: bronchus intermedius; LLL: left lower lobe; LMB: left main bronchus; RMB: right main bronchus; RUL: right upper lobe.

(B) Station 7 nodes are noted in the space between the medial margin of both main bronchi (yellow lines) and nodes outside of the space are station 10. Station 7 extends posteriorly around the esophagus. AoA: aortic arch; BI: bronchus intermedius; LLL: left lower lobe; LMB: left main bronchus; RMB: right main bronchus; RUL: right upper lobe.

Mentions: Station 7 encompasses a larger area in the new seventh edition IASLC map than on previous map versions and is most easily identified on the coronal images (Figure 7A). This is one of the major changes and reconciles the Naruke and MD-ATS maps11.
