English term or phrase: mid-mastoid
mid-mastoid left ear; mid-mastoid right ear;
arturodiaz
en la parte mediana/por/en [el] medio del hueso mastoides/la mastoides
Explanation:
I am uncertain about the translation of "mid" into Spanish.

However, I think it means "half way up" the mastoid bone (the bone behind the ear).

Hair density usually decreases as we move toward the ear and increases as we move toward the occipital area in most individuals. (See below). Excising a donor area exclusively from the occipital area would, therefore, theoretically contain much more hair than the usual pattern of donor area harvesting. Bernstein recommends we measure density 5 cm lateral to the mid-occipital regions. Cole recommends measurement of density over the "mid-mastoid" area if a single site is assessed. This region is roughly half way between the occipital protuberance and the auricle. The measurement assumes you will remove a donor strip extending from near the ear to a line drawn vertically through the occipital protuberance (either unilaterally or bilaterally). However, because hair density varies from the mid-occipital region to the supra-auricular area, it is more accurate to measure density in more than one location along the proposed strip; a minimum of three locations is recommended. These three points are called reference points(Figure 3). With the head in the Franklin plane, they are located a) in the mid-sagittal plane at the occipital protuberance, b) three centimeters superior to the reflection of the helix on a line drawn superiorly from the external auditory meatus, and c) at a point half-way along the line connecting points a) and b) over the ipsilateral mastoid. This line is generally between 14 and 15 cm long, putting the mid-point between 7 and 7.5 cm from either endpoint. The three reference points serve as sites for all density measurements and are an attempt to standardize the examination of the donor area.
