Radial inclination is the slope of the distal radial articular surface in relation to the radial shaft. 

Measurement

The radial inclination angle is made on the wrist AP projection as an angle between a line drawn between the radial styloid and the ulnar border of the distal radius with respect to a line perpendicular to the shaft 8.
