OA 16.07 - Radiological Feature on TSCT for Predicting a Pathological Less-Invasive Lung Cancer According to the 8th TNM Classification (ID 8608)
14:30 - 16:15 | Presenting Author(s): Shinya Katsumata
The limited resection for lung cancer has become more prevalent for patients who show a compromised pulmonary or cardiac function. As of now standard care of lung cancer is lobectomy with lymph node dissection or sampling even for early lung cancer. Japan clinical oncology group (JCOG) study 0201 has proposed the criteria to diagnose pathological less-invasive lung adenocarcinoma by using consolidation to tumor ratio (CTR) on preoperative thin-sliced computed tomography (TSCT) scan. Three clinical trials have been ongoing based on this result, but the TNM classification was drastically revised in 2016, especially in T category. The aim of this study is to propose the new radiological criteria to predict pathological less-invasive lung cancer before surgery in accordance with the new TNM classification.
We analyzed the 744 patients who have peripheral Tis-T1cN0M0 non-small cell lung cancer with 3cm or less in size and underwent complete resection by lobectomy from 2003 to 2011. We defined a lung cancer with no nodal involvement and no vessel invasion pathologically as a pathological less-invasive cancer, and investigated the radiological criteria corresponding to the new T category by using TSCT to predict a pathological less-invasive cancer with the specificity of 97% or more. We also re-evaluated the criteria by adding the parameter of CTR and presence of ground-glass opacity (GGO), and prognostic parameters; overall survival (OS) and relapse-free survival (RFS).
The cTis/T1ami/T1a patients showed no pathological invasive cancer except for only 1 patient (specificity: 99%). In the cT1b/T1c patients, the specificity of cT1b with CTR 0.5 or less, cT1b with C/T ratio 0.75 or less, and cT1b with GGO presence were 100%, 97.1%, 94.4%, respectively. The new criteria of cT1a or less and cT1b with CTR 0.75 or less showed excellent prognosis for OS and RFS.
As most of the patients with cTis/T1ami/T1a and cT1b with CTR 0.75 or less showed pathological less-invasive cancers and extremely good survival, they will be more likely to be obtained good outcomes by sublobar resection including wide-wedge resection as well. The further prospective study will be required to confirm the hypothesis.
