Lung cancer is the one of the most important cause of cancer-related deaths all over the world, with a comparatively low 5-year survival rate of 15%. CT scan based staging for lung cancer is an important guide for deciding treatment strategy, surgical planning and prognostication. It is very challenging for the radiologist to determine accurately the staging. It is relatively easy task to decide the T- stage of the disease and differentiation between local intra-thoracic and distant metastatic disease. However many times it is difficult to characterize small pulmonary nodules, mediastinal nodes, which have bearing on staging of the treatment strategy. The imaging approach of lung is to pretreatment planning to localize the disease extent, involvement of important structures, satellite nodules, mediastinal adenopathy and distant lesions in the liver. The post treatment changes in the lung tumors can give confused findings many times. But the radiological appearances of lung canĀ¬cer for stage disease with latest TNM classification system, evaluation with CT scan or PET CT scan of lung tumors; both treatment and post-treatment can make a significant contribution to management strategy. We will evaluate different imaging parameters, approach for analysis of CT scan lung both before treatment and post radiation changes and will update recent imaging criteria
