BACKGROUND Recent methodological refinements in magnetic resonance (MR) imaging have led to brain averaging and morphometric approaches that are sensitive to subtle anatomical distinctions in schizophrenia. METHODS Using a novel morphometric technique for surface analysis, 48 selected landmarks of the rendered ventricular system were extracted and compared between the ventricles of 20 patients with schizophrenia and 20 normal subjects. RESULTS There was no significant difference in… CONTINUE READING
