In any problem involving images having scale-dependent structures, a key issue is the modeling of these multi-scale characteristics. Because multi-scale phenomena frequently possess nonstationary, piece-wise multi-model behaviour, the classic hidden Markov method can not perform well in modeling such complex images. In this paper we provide a new modeling approach to extend previous hierarchical methods, with multiple hidden fields, to perform reconstruction in more complex, nonstationary contexts.
