The article reports on the designation of Glagov remodeling in the atherosclerotic carotid artery of a 69-year-old man. The patient was referred for a magnetic resonance carotid angiogram which showed a 30% stenosis of the right internal carotid artery. The vessel has been positively remodeled to preserve the vessel lumen of the carotid artery. The remodeling has been performed using cardiovascular magnetic resonance.
