Medical Definition of Screw pinch

1. A variant on the theta pinch, in which axial currents (as in a z pinch, but less intense) produce a poloidal magnetic field (in addition to the usual longitudinal field), thus making a corkscrew field configuration. See: theta pinch, z pinch, pinch device. (09 Oct 1997)
