About

Bio

Throughout his career, Dr. Canale has held an interest in breast health issues building skills and knowledge in this area. He is an active member of the American Society of Breast Surgeons and the American Society of Breast Disease (having served on the Communications Committee and Membership Committee for the latter). Dr. Canale previously co-chaired the Breast Care Committee at Rex Hospital and single handedly established the first and only weekly breast specific multidisciplinary tumor conference in Wake County. Specialty skills include breast ultrasound, ultrasound and stereotactic guided procedures, image guided minimally invasive (core) biopsies, sentinel lymph node mapping/biopsy, SAVI placement for accelerated partial breast irradiation, and cryoablation of benign breast lesions.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
