Windows 7: Search for file names not content?

Search for file names not content?

In the Start / Search box is it possible to set up a serach that only brings up file names and not text in every file / document? I'm looking for a document with medical in the file name but when I search fo it I come up with every email, document, website etc that has the word medical somewhere in the text / content. I'm trying to narrow the search to file names only.
Thanks, Airpix
