Parkinson's disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder characterized by disabling motor and non-motor symptoms.1 The abnormalities of white-matter (WM) tracts/regions have been demonstrated in PD. However, previous studies have largely dependent on univariate analysis, such as t-test, which may result in Type-1 error. Further, it remains unclear whether the disruption of WM tracts/regions provided worthwhile information to identify PD from HC. Hence, in current study, a machine learning approach was applied to investigate the white matter profiles of PD.
