INTRODUCTION Even for patients with clinical N0 non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), several invasive tests are available to pathologically confirm the presumptive mediastinal stage by radiologic modalities. The aim of this study was to determine a high-risk population for mediastinal nodal metastasis in patients with clinical stage IA NSCLC, which would be suitable for mediastinal staging by invasive modalities, such as mediastinoscopy or endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle… CONTINUE READING
