The notion of intersection body is introduced by Lutwak in 1988, it is one of important research contents and led to the studies of Busemann-Petty problem in the Brunn-Minkowski theory. Based on the properties of the intersection bodies, Schuster introduced the notion of radial Blaschke-Minkowski homomorphisms and proved a lot of related inequalities. In this paper, by applying the dual mixed volume theory and analytic inequalities, we first give a lower bound of the dual quermassintegrals for the mixed radial Blaschke-Minkowski homomorphisms. As its an application, we get a reverse form of the well-known Busemann intersection inequality. Further, a Brunn-Minkowski type inequality of the Lp radial Minkowski sum for the dual quermassintegrals of mixed radial Blaschke-Minkowski homomorphisms is established, and then the intersection body version of this Brunn-Minkowski type inequality is yielded. From this, we not only extend Schuster's related result but also obtain the Brunn-Minkowski type inequalities of Lp harmonic radial sum and Lp radial Blaschke sum, respectively.
