Check the costmap configuration part of this tutorial. You will need to convert the radar data into LaserScan or PointCloud and then add the sensor under the obstacle_layer in your costmap config files. Should look something like this:

point_cloud_sensor: {sensor_frame: frame_name, data_type: PointCloud, topic: topic_name, marking: true, clearing: true}
