    medical, technical, and temporal costs

    Hello everyone,

    What do you think about the following sentence? Please help me make it sound better and more natural:

    "At the same time medical, technical, and temporal costs for arranging research are significantly fewer in comparison with traditional approaches"



    The intended meaning is that we compare the amount of time, technical resources medical resources needed for doing research using new metods with all this in the case of using traditional old methods.

    Thanks a lot

    You may wish to read this sticky thread from the forum: http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/as...e-patient.html

    There are a lot of posts and not many of us. It is also the weekend so perhaps there are fewer people on here. In any case, bumping your thread after only four hours is not reasonable.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    I'm trying to think of a better word than 'temporal'.

    Probably 'timing'.

    Use less with costs rather than fewer.
