The term radionuclide is one we apply to any atom with an unstable atomic nucleus. It's the correct term for radioisotope. These atoms are radioactive, and emit radioactivity when they undergo radioactive decay. There are unstable configurations of every element, and a few elements have no stable nuclear configurations at all. These include technetium, promethium, and also bismuth and all the elements with an atomic number greater than that of bismuth, which is 83.
