In this study we investigate whether there are differences in CSF volumes between CHDs and healthy controls, as well as examining any correlation between CSF volume and CSF flow, and whether this relationship is altered in CHDs. We showed that certain CSF volumes are elevated in CHD. We also observed that increased flow metrics are correlated with both increased volume in some CSF compartments and decreased volume in other CSF compartments. Lastly, there maybe interplay between CSF flow and volume within CHDs.
