About Dr Sheryl van Staden

I have since been registered as a Specialist Veterinarian (Diagnostic Imaging) with the South African Veterinary Council.

I have also been a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging since 1998 and a European Specialist in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging. My professional work has included both private referral practice and academic lecturing at Universities enhancing my skills as a radiologist and providing varied and broad experience in Diagnostic Imaging.

I was a Senior Lecturer at Onderstepoort until 2000, when I returned to private practice and worked as a specialist veterinary radiologist in Durban. In the period of 2001-2004, I gained international experience and had the unique opportunity of lecturing veterinary students at an American University on the small island of St Kitts in the Caribbean and I also worked as a radiologist in a referral practice in Sydney, Australia.

In 2005, I returned to South Africa and launched Veterinary Imaging Partner to provide a radiological consultancy to South African private veterinarians. From 2007-2012, I again worked at the University of Pretoria (UP) as a Senior Lecturer in Anatomy, and developed an in-depth knowledge of Imaging Anatomy. During 2014-2017, I worked as a part-time Senior Lecturer in Diagnostic Imaging for UP. I am currently also an international teleradiology consultant. 

I currently live in Randfontein (West Rand), Gauteng with my husband and 2 daughters.
