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 11R. (A) Station 11Rs is located between the right upper lobe bronchus and bronchus intermedius. (B) Station 11Ri is present between the right middle and lower lobe bronchi. Lung window setting is useful to define the bronchial details. BI: bronchus intermedius; RLL: right lower lobe; RML: right middle lobe; RUL: right upper lobe.

Figure 11: Station 11R. (A) Station 11Rs is located between the right upper lobe bronchus and bronchus intermedius. (B) Station 11Ri is present between the right middle and lower lobe bronchi. Lung window setting is useful to define the bronchial details. BI: bronchus intermedius; RLL: right lower lobe; RML: right middle lobe; RUL: right upper lobe.

Mentions: Station 11 is subdivided into 11Rs and 11Ri and their anatomic definition is shown in Table 7 and Figure 11.
