Medial is basically a technical word and it is used as an adjective. The idea the word conveys is that of something located in the middle. Usually the word is not used in common way and the appropriate use of the word is that with body or organ.

There are several other words that are in existence to convey the idea of same concept and the only thing that differentiates among them is that in what context you are using the word. Median is one such word but the word is especially used in mathematics only where you have to find out the average value of something.

Even the different branches of mathematics use the word in different way and in geometry it is used for a straight line that passes from the point of a triangle to that of the centre of the opposite side.
