In this study, we examined the performance of predicting patients with schizophrenia based on the patterns of altered tract integrity over the whole brain. The whole-brain tract information was compared with predefined differences between schizophrenia patients and healthy participants to calculate an index of SLI indicating the similarity to schizophrenia. Our results showed that the prediction performance was high (AUC = 0.86 for males; AUC = 0.77 for females) when we compared the white matter integrities at specific segments on fiber pathways.
