      • Abstract

      The newly revised TNM classification shows that cT and pT are to be evaluated with solid component on CT and pathological invasive size in adenocarcinoma of the lung. We evaluated the predictive factors for invasiveness, lymph node metastasis and recurrence in patients with adenocarcinomas of the lung, particularly pathological tumor diameters both of gross and invasive size, and solid component diameter using computed tomography (CT) both with lung window settings and mediastinal window settings.

      We evaluated 533 patients with lung adenocarcinomas (diameter, 6–132 mm) who underwent surgical resections. 447 of the 533 have been underwent systematic node dissection. Tumors were examined using CT with thin section conditions (1.25-mm thick: high-resolution CT), with tumor dimensions evaluated under two conditions: lung window (LD) and mediastinal window (MD) settings. Both of the tumor size on CT (LD, MD), consolidation component size on CT with lung window settings (C), preoperative serum carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) levels, pathological tumor diameter both of gross(GS) and invasive lesion(IS), and pathological status [invasion of lymphatic vessels (ly), vascular vessels (v), pleura (pl), lymph node metastasis] were examined. Area under the curve (AUC) of Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) was used for evaluation.

      The solid component evaluated on computed tomography especially by MD and C can predict the invasiveness and lymph node metastasis in lung adenocarcinoma as well as pathological invasive size.
