RI-TE, Lda. is a Portuguese startup, spin-off from the University of Aveiro, whose main activity is the R&D of systems and instrumentation for radiation detection and imaging.

Current efforts are focused on a preclinical PET scanner with an intelligent acquisition method that allows a dramatic reduction in the number of radiation detection cells, resulting in a much lower manufacturing cost, while achieving great imaging performance, with high spatial resolution and uniformity.

Our mission is to DEMOCRATIZE ACCESS TO PET TECHNOLOGY, making it affordable to:

- Biomedical research centers performing preclinical small animal imaging research (e.g. tests of new drugs and therapies for cancer or neurodegenerative diseases);

- Universities and Health Technology Schools teaching and training nuclear medicine professionals.
