The thing is that most of our doctors (whether graduated in an Arab or Western country) know these terms in English. According to what I know, Medicine is taught in English in our schools except for Syria! So I thought that the term would sound strange even to an Arab specialist. But Iguess I'd have to agree with the precision point. It's a specialized medical text after all.
دينا، صحيح أن القارئ لن يكون معه الانترنت، إلا أنني أرى أن القارئ شخص مختص في الطب أي يفهمها على الطاير، أليس كذلك؟ على سبيل المثال، عندما أقول :محرك ثلاثي الطور أو (تري فاز) فإن من يعمل في حقل المحركات الكهربائية هو من يفهم ما أعني، فمارأيك؟
...in any language, and, as a matter of method, the translator is obligated to assume that the writers of the original text know that. They chose a difficult term for their own reason, possibly because it is precise and the intended reader is a specialist
Sorry Fayez ... I should have pointed out that I looked for the term and found الأخمعي there. But please everybody, note that the reader doesn't usually google for words while reading a hard copy. I'd appreciate more suggestions other than الأخمعي (where does it come from aslan this أخمعي word? Any idea about its root?)

Notes to answerer
Asker: I know it's الأخمعي because I found it so not only in online resources but in Medical dictionaries too. But I need aanother word that the reader can understand. I'm a medical translator myself, but I'll never understand the word أخمعي if I ever read it in a medical text!!!
