English term or phrase: cortical spokes
From the description of a specific form of cataracts. The context (what little there is) is as follows:
"The prismatic effect of the hand held aspheric lens allows for easier treatment around cataracts (cortical spokes), and hemorrhage and vitreous debris."

This is the definition of cortical spokes: Cortical spokes are a type of cataract that isn’t uniformly opaque, but forms radial spoke-like or starlike patterns.

I haven't been able to find the German (or Latin) technical term for this - but I might be looking in all the wrong places. Any ideas?
TIA.

Explanation:
wobei ich meine, dass die Erklärung in der Klammer (nämlich "cortical spokes") auch nur ausdrücken soll, dass sich der Rindenstar radial ausgebildet hat. Dafür würde ich dann die Übersetzung "radial ausgebildeter Rindenstar" nehmen.

Viel Glück!

Thank you very much - this was indeed a case of Betriebsblindheit - I got so hung up on the spokes that I didn't see the forest for the trees, or, in this case, the Rinde. :-) Found a picture of cataracta corticalis which shows the spokes very clearly. The addition of "radial ausgebildet" won't even be necessary. Thanks again.
