GONZALEZ, Christian et al. Lung cancer staging: an update. Rev. argent. radiol. [online]. 2012, vol.76, n.4, pp.325-330. ISSN 1852-9992.

The International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) together with The International Union Against Cancer (UICC) and The American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) created an International Staging Committee (ISC) that retrospectively collected and analyzed data from patients worldwide with the purpose of introducing changes to the 6th edition of the TNM staging for lung cancer published in 2002, which was not changed since 1997 (5th Edition). The updating was intended to provide an adequate and safe staging, which is necessary to describe, in a standardized manner, the extent of disease, predict prognosis, select therapy, and assess outcomes in prospective clinical trials. The 7th edition of the TNM staging for lung cancer published in late 2009 and effective as of January 1, 2010, have incorporated substantial changes in the staging of lung cancer (with particular reference to tumor size and lymph node mapping), and, additionally, proposing a new staging groups.
