Clinical staging of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is used for planning therapeutic strategies. In particular, pleural invasion is regarded as an indicator for upstaging to T2 or T3 in the current 8th TNM staging system; patients with pleural invasion should be indicated for lobectomy rather than sublobar resection. Therefore, accurate preoperative prediction of pleural invasion is important for surgical planning. In recent years, different radiological investigations for patients with NSCLC have been widely used, and methods for more precise detection have been developed in the current medical imaging studies. Therefore, several radiological investigation tools have been used for the prediction of pleural invasion. In this article, to identify the imaging modalities for accurate prediction of pleural invasion, we reviewed the different methods used for this purpose and discussed their advantages and limitations.
