How many patients will be in cryonic suspension at the Cryonics Institute in 2030?

Question

The number of cryonics patients in storage at the Cryonics Institute (CI) has been increasing steadily since it was founded in 1976. From 2009 to 2019, the total number of patients increased from 95 to 177.

How many patients will be in cryonic suspension at the Cryonics Institute in 2030?

This question resolves to the largest number of patients in cryonic suspension at CI in 2030, cited in any report published by CI that year which gives such a number. If there is no such report (for any reason) this question resolves ambiguous. A "patient" is here taken to mean any preserved human brain (incl. neuropreservation, whole-body cryopreservation, etc.).
