    A native of Jonesboro, Ark., Dr. Green pursued his undergraduate training at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors in biology. In 2001, he received his Doctor of Medicine degree at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock.  Postgraduate training included an internal medicine intern year at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis and a four-year diagnostic radiology residency at Baptist Memorial Hospital of Memphis. At Duke University Hospital in Durham, N.C., Dr. Green completed fellowship training in nuclear radiology, including PET-CT.  

    Dr. Green joined UMMC in 2008 and serves our patients, faculty members, residents, students, and support staff as an Associate Professor of Radiology and Director of the PET-CT Center. He delivers high-quality PET-CT image interpretations combined with optimized imaging protocols personalized for each patient. He provided expert knowledge and guidance during the PET-CT scanner selection and development of the first PET-CT Center at UMMC. Dr. Green has interpreted over 10,000 PET-CT examinations, providing diagnostic and therapeutic decision support in patients with cancer, dementia, infections and seizures.  

    Dr. Green served as co-investigator in the Jackson Field Center for the UMMC MIND Center's NIH/NIA ARIC-PET Amyloid Imaging Study to investigate, via PET imaging, if vascular risk factors and markers are associated with increased beta-amyloid binding, and explored associations between these variables and cognitive performance.

    Currently, Dr. Green serves on the American Board of Radiology (ABR) Nuclear Medicine Core Examination and Radioisotope Safety Examination committees. In 2015, Dr. Green was appointed the chair of the Education committee of the American College of Radiology (ACR) commission on Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging and has co-chaired the ACR Annual PET-CT Course in Chicago, Ill. One of his duties as an ACR nuclear medicine accreditation committee member is to review nuclear medicine and PET-CT images and reports from hospitals and imaging centers throughout the U.S. Additional ACR committee appointments include nuclear medicine practice parameters and economics. He has served as president of the Mississippi Society of Nuclear Medicine and has been awarded the UMMC Radiology Department Teacher of the Year in 2009 and 2014.  

    Dr. Green's patients at UMMC are always his top priority through the UMMC essentials of education, healthcare and research.
