ABSTRACT
An encyclopedia entry for "radius" is presented. It refers to the shorter of the two long bones found in the forearm. It is noted that the radius is the bone in the thumb side of the arm while the other is the ulna. It is asserted that fractures usually affect the radius because it is subjected to most of the weight placed on the wrist.
