We introduce a spatially non-homogeneous adaptive image model and multiresolution reconstruction algorithm for Bayesian tomographic reconstruction. In contrast to existing approaches, the proposed image model is formulated in a multiresolution wavelet domain and relies on training data to incorporate the expected characteristics of typical reconstructions. The actual tomographic reconstruction is performed in the space domain to simplify enforcement of the positivity constraint. We apply the proposed algorithm to simulated data and to data acquired using the IndyPET dedicated research scanner. Our experimental results indicate that our algorithm can improve reconstruction quality over fixed resolution Bayesian methods.
