AI / advances in neurosurgery / Peyronie's disease

July 18, 2020

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 Mayo Clinic Radio podcast, Dr. Bradley Erickson, a Mayo Clinic diagnostic radiologist, will discuss AI in medicine and society. Also , 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.
