    Inscribed right angles and semicircles

    I know that any inscribed angle in a semi-circle (or with a base that is a diameter in a circle) is a right angle.

    My question is, is the reverse true? That is, does any inscribed right angle triangle with the 90 degree vertex on the circle, have a base that is a diameter?
