Just a note that this varies from State to State among the 34 Agreement  
States (i.e., those States in which NRC has discontinued their authority for  
materials licensees), and one should always check with their regulatory agency  in 
this regard.

"There  is no NRC requirement that an AU must render an interpretation of
a  diagnostic image or results of a therapeutic procedure. NRC recognizes
that  the AU may or may not be the physician who interprets such  studies.
Additionally, NRC regulations do not restrict who can read and  interpret
diagnostic scans or the results of therapeutic procedures  involving the
administration of byproduct material to individuals." NUREG -  1556, Vol.
9, Rev. 1 (page 8-23)

This document combines and  supercedes information found in Reg Guide
10.8 rev 2. (among  others).
