VARPRO-ICM was previously introduced as a Dixon processing formulation that was able to handle the very large field inhomogeneities seen at 7T. However, long processing times have prevented this formulation from achieving practical use. In this abstract, we present image processing improvements that decrease the processing times required to solve the VARPRO-ICM formulation by a factor of about 70.
