SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NRC is seeking nominations for 
diagnostic radiologists who possess training and experience with the 
diagnostic use of byproduct material. The diagnostic radiologist would 
also possess knowledge of imaging modalities that are not regulated by 
the NRC such as diagnostic ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, 
computed tomography (CT) and interventional radiology. This individual 
will advise the NRC on current and emerging technologies that combine 
modalities that are regulated by the NRC (e.g., positron emission 
tomography) with those that are not regulated by the NRC (e.g., CT).
    The ACMUI diagnostic radiologist provides advice on issues 
associated with the regulation of applications of byproduct material 
for imaging, localization and therapeutic purposes. This advice 
includes providing input on NRC proposed rules and guidance, providing 
recommendations on the training and experience requirements for 
physicians specializing in nuclear medicine and radiation therapy, 
identifying medical events associated with these uses, evaluating non-
routine uses of byproduct material and emerging medical technologies, 
bringing key issues in the nuclear medicine and radiology community to 
the attention of NRC staff, as they relate to radiation safety and NRC 
medical-use policy.
    ACMUI members are selected based on their educational background, 
certification(s), work experience, involvement and/or leadership in 
professional society activities, and other information obtained in 
letters or during the selection process.
    ACMUI members possess the medical and technical skills needed to 
address evolving issues. The current membership is comprised of the 
following professionals: (a) Nuclear medicine physician; (b) nuclear 
cardiologist; (c) two radiation oncologists; (d) diagnostic 
radiologist; (e) therapy medical physicist; (f) nuclear medicine 
physicist; (g) nuclear pharmacist; (h) radiation safety officer; (i) 
patients' rights advocate; (i) Food and Drug Administration 
representative; and (j) Agreement State representative. For additional 
information about membership on the ACMUI, visit the ACMUI Membership 
Web page, http://www.nrc.gov/aboutnrc/regulatory/advisory/acmui/membership.html.
    NRC is inviting nominations for the Diagnostic Radiologist 
physician position on the ACMUI. The term of the individual currently 
occupying this position will end on January 10, 2015. Committee members 
currently serve a four-year term and may be considered for 
reappointment to an additional term.
