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.

Lower zone: stations 8 and 9. The upper border of station 8 is the upper border of the left lower lobe (LLL) bronchus on the left side and the lower border of the bronchus intermedius (BI) on the right side. The upper border of the station 9 is the inferior pulmonary vein. The lower border of station 8 and 9 is the diaphragm. The border between 8R and 8L is the midline (dashed line).

The upper border of station 8 is the upper border of the left lower lobe (LLL) bronchus on the left side and the lower border of the bronchus intermedius (BI) on the right side. The upper border of the station 9 is the inferior pulmonary vein. The lower border of station 8 and 9 is the diaphragm. The border between 8R and 8L is the midline (dashed line).

Mentions: Below the lower border of subcarinal zone, station 8 nodes lay adjacent to the wall of the esophagus and to the right or left of the midline (Figure 8).
