“Viktoria Mitlyng, an Nuclear Regulatory Commission [NRC] spokeswoman, said the agency was ordering Dr. Gary Kao to refrain from any “NRC-regulated activities” because he no longer works at an institution that can require him to undergo the training the agency believes he needs before performing medical procedures involving radioactive materials. Most of the treatments he performed were wrong,” she said.”
