Isotope and radioisotope are different .


Isotopes are atoms of a same element which have same number of protons but different number of neutrons .

Radioisotope is a isotope which is radioactive in nature that means after a certain period of time the radioisotope will decay ,give out energy . This happens because the isotope contains unequal numbers of protons and neutrons ( that's why they decay ).
Radioisotope can be use to treat cancer and to check for leaks .

I hope you understand and please check this answer if you want and if I am wrong then please correct me .
Thank you,
