    In search of new bioactive molecules from Caryopteris odorata, two new regio-isomeric iridoid glucosides were isolated from its ethyl acetate soluble fraction. Their structures were established as 8-O-caffeoyl caryoptoside ( 1) and 8-O-caffeoyl shanzhiside methyl ester ( 2) using FAB-MS, IR, H...

    Nowadays manyMRI scans can give 3D volume data with different contrasts, but the observers may want to view various contrasts in the same 3D volume. The conventional 2D medical fusion methods can only fuse the 3D volume data layer by layer, which may lead to the loss of interframe correlative...
