Dr Craig Hacking et al.

The right lower lobe medial or medial basal segment is one of the five bronchopulmonary segments of the right lower lobe. It is the most inferomedial of the segments in the right lower lobe.

Together with the anterior segment, it is analogous to the left lower lobe anteromedial segment.
