Radionuclide

A radionuclide is a radioactive form of an atom that is either natural or manmade. They can be used in tiny amounts as a tracer in a bone scan, for example. Or they may be used as a cancer treatment. Iodine 131 is an example of a radionuclide - it is a radioactive form of iodine.

radionuclide

A radioactive nuclear species or nuclide. Of the 1,700 or so known nuclides, about 1,400 are radioactive. These radionuclides try to achieve a more stable structure by the emission of one or more different kinds of particles, including alpha particles. beta particles, or gamma rays, in the process k...

Radionuclide

A radionuclide or radioactive nuclide, also referred to as a radioisotope or radioactive isotope, is an atom with an unstable nucleus, characterized by excess energy available to be imparted either to a newly created radiation particle within the nucleus or via internal conversion. During this process, the radionuclide is said to undergo radioacti...
