    I'm not familiar with the word, but I usually fall back on my Latin lessons to pronounce unfamiliar scientific/medical terms, in which case it's likely the a in -pag- is pronounced as a short "ah" sound, as in "father.'

    No need to be ambiguous when demonstrating pronunciation.

    pro so peg no sia. I'm thinking it also depends on what country your from.
