What is your approach for a symptomatic inpatient with locally advanced NSCLC who cannot have a PET?   

Would you consider treating the full mediastinum or any mildly enlarged nodes, even contralateral? Do you have a strategy that transitions from a palliative to definite approach once the patient has been full staged? (In this case EBUS was negative but there are enlarged and growing N2 nodes and endobronchial obstruction)
