The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has named Health Physics Society member Bruce Thomadsen, PhD, CHP, as chairman of the Advisory Committee on the Medical Use of Isotopes (ACMUI). The chairman is appointed by the director of NRC's Office of Federal and State Materials and Environmental Management Programs.
The ACMUI, a group of experienced health care professionals, advises the NRC on policy and technical issues that arise in the regulation of medical uses of radioactive materials in diagnosis and therapy. The ACMUI members come from various disciplines and comment on changes to NRC regulations and guidance; evaluate certain nonroutine uses of radioactive material; provide technical assistance in licensing, inspection, and enforcement cases; and bring key issues to the Commission's attention for appropriate action.
