Artificial Intelligence in Medicine
When you think of artificial intelligence (AI), you might imagine what you see in the movies: robots, self-driving vehicles, and computers that think and act like humans. You might already be using AI every day when you ask Siri or Alexa for help. AI might be better described as machine learning or deep learning, and it is a fast-growing part of medicine, changing how health care providers treat patients. For example, AI is being used at Mayo Clinic to detect heart disease, treat stroke patients faster and create algorithms for diagnostic radiology.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Bradley Erickson, a Mayo Clinic diagnostic radiologist, will discuss AI in medicine and society. Also on the program, Dr. Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa, chair of Neurosurgery at Mayo Clinic in Florida, will share the latest in neurologic surgery for hard-to-treat brain tumors. And Dr. Matthew Ziegelmann, a Mayo Clinic urologist, will discuss Peyronie’s disease.

Human Microbiome Plus Bats and Rabies
While you may think of bacteria as something bad that you should avoid, the bacteria inside your gut can keep you healthy. The human gastrointestinal tract harbors 100 trillion microbes known as your microbiome that play an important role in maintaining health. Disruptions of the microbiome can lead to serious health problems. Research at the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine Microbiome Program is seeking to understand how the microbiome promotes wellness and how disruption of the microbiome can enable disease.

On this week's Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Purna Kashyap, co-director of the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine Microbiome Program, will discuss microbiome research. Also on the program, Dr. Robert Jacobson, a Mayo Clinic pediatrician, will share what you need to know about bats and rabies. And Dr. Karen Swanson, a Mayo Clinic pulmonologist, will share the latest information on the vaping crisis.

Breast Cancer & Breast Reconstruction Surgery
Around 250,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.S. every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Even as cancer treatments have become increasingly targeted and refined, many women choose to have a mastectomy versus lumpectomy and radiation. And close to half of women who undergo mastectomy have reconstruction using one of two options: reconstruction with implant surgery or reconstruction with flap surgery.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and three breast cancer topics will be featured on the next Mayo Clinic Radio program. Dr. Sarvam TerKonda, a Mayo Clinic plastic surgeon, will discuss reconstruction surgery after breast cancer treatment. Also, Dr. Jordan Ray, a Mayo Clinic cardiologist, will explain the importance of heart care for breast cancer patients. And Dr. Kathryn Ruddy, a Mayo Clinic medical oncologist, will discuss the rare and often overlooked disease of male breast cancer.
