Additions/new article[edit]

I could not find any article regarding STAN on wikipedia. STAN is an acronym for ST-analysis and is the addition of ST-segment analysis to the standard CTG recording. This has shown to be a better and more precise method than CTG alone, and is now in widespread use. Could someone write an article on this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.165.75.134 (talk) 15:07, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

Merge[edit]

This article should be merged with Cardiotocograph and possibly also with Nonstress test. --Una Smith (talk) 04:04, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

The article has since been merged with nonstress test, but the merger between Cardiotocograph and Cardiotocography still needs to be done. Are there any preferences for the title of the merged article? Looking at analogous medical articles (mostly in Category:Medical imaging), articles seem to favor using -graphy over -graph or -gram (though an exception is electrocardiogram - which should probably be moved to electrocardiography). --Scott Alter 02:35, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
Nonstress test is still posted as a separate article. Maybe a redirect is needed? Biolprof (talk) 15:48, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
