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.

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 diseasetreat stroke patients faster and create algorithms for diagnostic radiology.

Fall is here, and as the weather cools off, flu season heats up. After a particularly bad flu season in Australia, officials warn that could foretell what’s ahead for the U.S.

Getting a flu shot — though not 100% effective — is the best way to prevent the misery of the flu and its complications. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months or older be vaccinated annually against the flu.

On this Mayo Clinic Radio program segment, Dr. Gregory Poland, director of Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group, talks about the upcoming flu season, the importance of good hand-washing techniques, and the potential for a universal flu vaccine.

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 segment of the Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Purna Kashyap, co-director of the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine Microbiome Program, will discuss microbiome research.

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, discusses reconstruction surgery after breast cancer treatment in this Mayo Clinic Radio segment.
