Bloom’s taxonomy level of the course:

General Description:

The course is aimed to explain how to perform a TU which is an exam required for the TREOCAPA study. In fact, the ultimate purpose of this course is to ensure the TUs are realized following the exact same method across the 65 investigational sites in order to obtain standardized images for the entire study.

TU is an efficient technique to diagnose intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) grade III-IV or cystic leukomalacia, which are some of the primary endpoints of the TREOCAPA study phase III.
