    What is the anatomical position of the ulna to the radius?

    By anatomical position I mean palm up and using terms like medial, lateral and inferior.

    The ulna is medial to the radius, or the radius is lateral to the ulna (both are correct). Inferior and superior aren't relevant terms for this situation but would be if asking if the femur was inferior to the humerus. The anatomical position is a person standing up, palms up (meaning pinky finger medical to thumb). The ulna is a forearm bone that's on the pinky finger side of your arm, whereas the radius is the other forearm bone but it's on the thumb side of your arm.
