Schizophrenia Brain X-ray

Figure 3.2 Mean ventricle : brain ratio (VBR) in controls and patients with schizophrenia from a total of 39 separate studies. The diagonal line indicates the line of equality. Thus, this figure demonstrates that no matter which diagnostic system or method of measuring brain volume is used, patients with schizophrenia do have larger ventricles than controls.

Lateral Ventricles Schizophrenia

Figure 3.3 Ventricular size in monozygotic twins discordant for schizophrenia. Coronal magnetic resonance images of twins discordant for schizophrenia show lateral ventricular enlargement in the affected twin.
