The SMRT professional attendee numbers are reported within the overall ISMRM statistics, given the SMRT is an integral part of the ISMRM; however, since the SMRT hosts a track for technologists/radiographers in conjunction with the ISMRM, we have extracted the attendee numbers and provided additional statistics in line with ISMRM reporting. Please note only those statistics relating to professional attendee numbers are reported in the ISMRM numbers. All other statistics are unique to the SMRT.
