Technological Educational Institute of Athens

TEIA is the largest Technological Educational Institute of Athens is represented in NANOTHER project by the Department o Medical Instruments Technology. Studies in the department focus on the theory and technological applications of biomedical engineering. On research level the department focuses on medical instrumentation technologies, data acquisition, software implementation and dedicated imaging systems for small animal molecular imaging and dedicated clinical applications.

 

Role/activity of organisation in the project

TEIA is responsible for nanoparticles radiolabelling activities and in vivo imaging using SPECT and PET. More specifically nanoparticles under evaluation are labeled with Tc99m and then imaged with a high resolution SPECT system. The aim of those studies are to provide non invasive, visual information of nanoparticles kinetic in mice. In addition PET imaging will be used for the in vivo tumor imaging and assessment of hyperthermia effects.
