Count and Contain Formula from a Dropdown Cell


I am trying to use Count and contain formula to count within the cell (dropdown) the specific element and enlist the count in their respective column, but I cant seem to have the proper count using =COUNT(CONTAINS("Imaging & Diagnostics", Conferences1)). I have also used =COUNTIF(Conferences:Conferences, CONTAINS("Imaging & Diagnostics", Conferences1)) but it yields wrong count than what I expect.

I just started using smartsheet yesterday, so I am really new to this and urgently need help.
