When particles are in their ground state, atomic radius generally increases top to bottom and decreases from left to right. I believe that atomic radius is always measured when all of an elements electrons are in their ground state.
The atomic radius is measured only in the group state of the element. A side note: atomic radius increases as you go from the left of the periodic table and down. Therefore, francium has the largest atomic radius out of all the elements.
