Subtle but widespread deficit in the cortical and subcortical grey matter is a consistent neuroimaging observation in schizophrenia. Several studies have used voxel based morphometry (VBM) to investigate the nature of this structural deficit. We conducted a diagnostic test review to explore the diagnostic potential of VBM in differentiating schizophrenia from other types of first-episode psychoses.
