      • Pathology

        • Clinical Issues

          TERMINOLOGY

          • Definitions

            • Regional lymph node map using specific designations to facilitate reliable assessment of lymph node metastasis
              • Regional lymph nodes named according to structures with which they are associated or their general anatomic location
              • Defines 14 lymph node stations and 7 lymph node zones that can be assessed on CT and PET/CT
            • Should be used alongside 7th edition of tumor-node-metastasis (TNM) classification system for lung cancer
              • Includes non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC), small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC), and bronchial carcinoid
            • Reconciles discrepancies among older maps
              • Naruke lymph node map
              • Mountain-Dresler modification of American Thoracic Society (ATS) map
