Ziyad graduated from Al-Nahrain University, Baghdad in 1994. He completed his radiology training in the UK before moving to Perth to undertake a body imaging fellowship at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. In 2009 he commenced a neuroradiology fellowship at Royal Perth and SCGH’s Neurological Intervention & Imaging Service Western Australia (NIISwa). He then spent another 18 months as Consultant Radiologist at NIISwa before commencing further neuroradiology fellowship under Anne Osborn and Ric Harnsberger at The University of Utah, Salt Lake City. Upon returning to Western Australia, he resumed his role as Consultant Neuroradiologist with NIISwa and in late 2013 he joined Perth Radiological Clinic. Ziyad moved to Melbourne in 2014 where he worked as Consultant Radiologist at The Royal Melbourne Hospital before returning to Perth to work as Consultant Radiologist at Fiona Stanley Hospital.
