Memory test scoring for Alzheimer’s & adult cochlear implants
When it comes to Alzheimer’s disease, men are typically diagnosed earlier than women. But why? New research suggests it might be the test used to score a person’s memory. Women are stronger at verbal memory performance, potentially masking early signs of Alzheimer’s disease. A study published recently in American Academy of Neurology suggests that adjusting the test scoring to consider women's skill at verbal memory performance could help women be diagnosed earlier with Alzheimer's and it's precursor, mild cognitive impairment.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Michelle Mielke, a Mayo Clinic epidemiologist and an author on the study, will explain how memory testing is used to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease. Also on the program, Dr. Matthew Carlson, a Mayo Clinic otorhinolaryngologist, and Dr. Aniket Saoji, a Mayo Clinic audiologist, will discuss cochlear implants for adults. Then Dr. Richa Sood, a Mayo Clinic general internal medicine physician, will explain why optimism is good for your health. And Dr. Paul Friedman and Dr. Suraj Kapa — both Mayo Clinic cardiologists — will explain how artificial intelligence (AI) and an EKG can predict your physiological age.

Prostate Cancer + Exercise and the Heart
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer — second to skin cancer — among men in the U.S. One in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society. Screening is important because early detection greatly improves the chances of survival. While some types of prostate cancer grow slowly, and may need minimal or even no treatment, other types are aggressive and can spread quickly. If prostate cancer is suspected, a biopsy can confirm the diagnosis.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Derek Lomas, a Mayo Clinic urologist, will discuss prostate cancer, including a new biopsy method. Also on the program, Dr. Todd Miller, a Mayo Clinic cardiologist, will explain how exercise affects the heart. And Dr. Beth Robertson, a Mayo Clinic neurologist, will discuss headaches and treatment for migraines.

Of the over 100 kinds of arthritis, the two most common are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. John M. Davis III, a Mayo Clinic rheumatologist, will discuss arthritis, and the latest edition of the book, "Mayo Clinic on Arthritis — How to Manage Pain and Lead an Active Life". Also on the program, Dr. Stephen Kopecky, a Mayo Clinic cardiologist, will discuss how heart disease can be reversed.
