Lung cancer (lc) is the mortality leading tumor entity in male and female. Curative treatment requires surgical resection, but 70% of patients are inoperable in moment of diagnosis. Hifu as a noninvasive treatment is not applicable in ventilated lung. By using one lung flooding (olf) acoustic access to central tumors can be generated without damaging the lung. Our work showed the usability of sonographic and mr guidance as well as therapeutic effects of fus on lung cancer. For preserving quality of life, local tumor control by a minimal invasive, repetitive treatment modality like fus would be beneficial. The clinical prospective of fus in lung remain unclear, which depends on the accessibility of inoperable lc patients to olf and fus. Therefore patient files will be analyzed regarding their accessibility to olf and fus. In addition tumor location and volume will be classified to derive technical requirements of fus systems
