Their upper and lower limits are marked, respectively, by a plane cutting the main bronchi just below the carina and by a plane passing through the caudal limit of the main bronchi. These nodes are frequently located between the right and left pulmonary arteries and between the right and left main bronchi. •• Interlobar lymph nodes (stations 11R and 11L) are located in the fatty tissue lying between the lobar bronchi. The cranial edge of these nodal stations is therefore provided by the appearance of lobar bronchi, while the caudal edge is provided by the further subdivision of the lobe bronchi on the axial plane.

SMA superior mesenteric artery, IPD inferior pancreatoduodenal artery, MC middle colic artery, J jejunal artery. Adapted from Pedrazzoli S, Beger HG, Obertop H et al. 4 Pelvic Region As mentioned by Gregoire [6], lymph drainage of the pelvis has been described in anatomy and surgery textbooks but, unlike other anatomical regions, such as the head and neck and mediastinum regions, there is no universally accepted classification. The lack of a standard nomenclature largely derives from the technical difficulties involved in the identification, surgical dissection, and anatomicopathological evaluation of pelvic lymph nodes.

Moreover, for better setup of treatment fields, the arms should be raised above the head. In some cases of radiation delivery to the pelvic region, the prone position may be considered as an alternative to the supine position. For instance, the supine position is recommended for the treatment of anal cancer and gynecological tumors.
