radial dysplasia

radial hemimelia
absence of the radius.
radial paralysis
caused by loss of function of the radial nerve. See Table 14. Manifested by loss of function of extensor muscles and impaired sensory perception in the thoracic limb especially over the dorsum of the paw. Lesions at or distal to the level of the elbow result in difficulty in extending the carpus and foot so that weight may be carried on the dorsum of the foot. Lesions above that level, usually associated with injury to the brachial plexus, also cause an inability to actively extend the elbow (dropped elbow) and the animal cannot bear weight on the limb.

While radial technology outperforms bias in many instances (justifying the increased cost), bias tires, when used in the proper application, can provide significant cost savings and performance benefits over radial--proving the latest isn't always the greatest.
This is particularly true in a quarry setting, where a bias may be a better fit for one loader and radial may be a better fit for another loader on the same site.
While many patients may qualify for the radial approach, it is especially good for very obese patients or the frail, elderly, female patients since these groups tend to have higher bleeding complication rates.
Researchers also noted that the radial approach is still underused in groups at high risk for bleeding, such as older patients, women and patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS), an umbrella term to describe conditions in which blood flow to the heart is restricted.

lead radials appear for R-146 and R-168, but they are in light gray and not marked specifically as lead radials.
Lead radials must be charted when the intercept is more than 90 degrees or when mandated by a flight check.
A lead radial is published when inbound on the arc from HOGIR; however, there is not a published lead radial when transitioning to the localizer from ZIROB.
The lack of a published lead radial when transitioning from Z/ROB makes them correlate information to determine when they should begin a turn to intercept the localizer.
