We're a spin-off company from the University of Aveiro whose main activity is the R&D of radiation detection and imaging systems.
We want more talented students and researchers to fully understand and use a molecular imaging technology that can detect early disease and accelerate drug development: Positron Emission Tomography.
Our intelligent PET system and scanning method achieves high performance while reducing complexity and costs by more than 80%, enabling a much wider use of this powerful technology.
Our mission is to WIDEN ACCESS TO PET TECHNOLOGY, making it much more affordable to:
- Biomedical research laboratories performing preclinical small animal molecular imaging research;
- Technical Universities and Health Technology Schools teaching and training nuclear medical imaging professionals.
High quality images of mice brain!
RI-TE offers world-class solutions in the fields of Biomedical Sciences and Engineering, Nuclear Medicine, Radiopharmacy, Medical Imaging and associated instrumentation.
EasyPET technology is a new concept for PET imaging.
Its simplicity allows overcoming the main barriers to the adoption and use of PET: high complexity and cost.
