Keep PET simple!

Cost-effective high-resolution PET scanner technology

About us

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, researchers, technologists and doctors to fully understand and use a molecular imaging technology that can accelerate drug development and detect early disease: 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 IMAGING, by making it much more affordable to:

  • Biomedical Research Laboratories carrying out preclinical research in small animal models;
  • Technical Universities and Health Technology Schools teaching and training nuclear medical imaging professionals;
  • Hospitals and Diagnostic Imaging Clinics.
