In the 8th Edition of the Tumor Node Metastasis Classification System for Lung Cancer, the definitions of the clinical T and pathologic T descriptors have changed. Little has been reported on comparisons between the consolidation diameter in the lung window setting and the tumor diameter in the mediastinal window setting with respect to the correlations with pathological invasive size (IS) and invasiveness. The purpose of the present study was to clarify which window setting was better for preoperatively estimating IS and invasiveness.

Surgical construction of an opening or window in the pericardium. It is often called subxiphoid pericardial window technique.
Fenestra or oval opening on the lateral wall of the vestibular labyrinth adjacent to the MIDDLE EAR. It is located above the cochlear round window and normally covered by the base of the STAPES.
Surgical reconstruction of the hearing mechanism of the middle ear, with restoration of the drum membrane to protect the round window from sound pressure, and establishment of ossicular continuity between the tympanic membrane and the oval window. (Dorland, 28th ed.)

Lung infections with the invasive forms of ASPERGILLUS, usually after surgery, transplantation, prolonged NEUTROPENIA or treatment with high-doses of CORTICOSTEROIDS. Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis can progress to CHRONIC NECROTIZING PULMONARY ASPERGILLOSIS or hematogenous spread to other organs.
Lung cancer is the uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. Originating in the lungs, this growth may invade adjacent tissues and infiltrate beyond the lungs. Lung cancer, the most common cause of cancer-related death in men and women, is respons...
