Radiating pain

I once heard a doctor talk about a broken arm bone    … he said the pain was radiating up the arm  ….  Now that would
have made sense if it was the radius that was broken ….  In this case it was the ulna that was broken  …. I think he should have said the pain was ulnating up the arm …. Why can’t these doctors get their terminology straight ?
