I expect that most, if not all patients, would be confused. Heck, 
even most physicists remain confused on how to use the terms as 
intended!  MY biggest issue is that any new term would be contrary to 
the current definitions used throughout the world, and, are included 
in various international standards. The USA should not embark on a 
new term that is sued solely in the USA, and would further increase a 
a chasm in the standards area where there needs to be more 
harmonization, and not a continual splitting.
