Frensley Center for Imaging Research

The Frensley Imaging Center is a BCM-approved cost center whose mission is to:

(i) facilitate through small animal imaging, the translation of scientific discoveries made by Baylor and Baylor-affiliated faculty into clinical practice, and to

(ii) translate imaging technologies, novel imaging agents, and devices developed in a unique interdisciplinary setting involving engineers, biologists, clinicians, and chemists.

What services do we offer?

  • Imaging protocol development as well as assisting with protocol approval processes
  • Ability to conduct GLP-certifiable studies with assistance study design, data logging, and study assurance.
  • Nuclear imaging: single photon computed tomography (SPECT), positron emission tomography (PET), scintigraphy.
  • Optical imaging: Fluorescence imaging and bioluminescence imaging.
  • Synthesis of imaging agents for nuclear and optical imaging.
  • Radiography (X-ray film) and computed tomography.
  • Fusion of imagery, advanced tomography assistance, biodistribution, and pharmacokinetics.
  • In-house, “clean” small animal housing for holding 1000 rodents (mice, rats, hamsters) is maintained by BCM’s Center for Comparative Medicine and enables longitudinal imaging within the barrier animal facility.
