A line or direction from the center (principal point, isocenter, nadir point, or substitute center) to any point on a photograph.
(mathematics)
For a plane curve C, the locus of end points of lines, drawn from a fixed point, that are equal and parallel to the radius of curvature of C.
(navigation)
One of a number of radial lines of position defined by an azimuthal radio navigation facility and identified in terms of the bearing (usually magnetic) of all points on that line from the facility.
(science and technology)

i. A discrete bearing, usually magnetic, transmitted by a navigational beam (very high frequency omnidirectional radio-range, or VOR; tactical air navigation, or TACAN; very high frequency omnidirectional range tactical air navigation, or VORTAC; etc.), which is the origin. There are 360 radials radiating out from any navigational aid (NAVAID), and each radial is named for the number of degrees clock-wise from magnetic north that the radial leaves the navigational facility.
ii. A reciprocating engine in which cylinders are arranged radially or like spokes in a wheel.
iii. A line or direction from the radial center to any point on a photograph. The radial center is assumed to be the principal point, unless other-wise designated; (e.g., nadir radial).

Il est egalement interessant de souligner que, parmi les trois indices de dispersion calcules, c'est la distance radiale moyenne de recrutement qui connait les plus fortes augmentations ce qui temoigne ainsi du fait que, meme si dans l'ensemble les aires de recrutement des poles d'emploi se sont fortement agrandies, c'est toujours dans des localites avoisinantes que les poles ont tendance a trouver l'essentiel de leur main-d'oeuvre.
In questa revisione ci riferiremo al test ULNT1 e ULNT 2A per il nervo mediano, al test ULNT 2B per il nervo radiale, al test ULNT 3 per il nervo ulnare, sebbene ognuno di questi test vada a provocare in modo inevitabile anche le radici nervose (14).

Una risposta classica all'ULNT1 comporta: per una piccola percentuale, uno stiramento nella parte anteriore della spalla, mentre per il restante 99% dei soggetti si avverte uno stiramento profondo nella fossa cubitale, che spesso si estende in basso verso l'aspetto anteriore o radiale dell'avambraccio e nella parte radiale della mano.
