The 2019 Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) was perhaps the most impactful meeting in recent memory for the field of cardiovascular CT. Beyond just being the highest attended ASM meeting in the society's history, the virtual impact of the meeting extended farther than ever before due to coordinated social media coverage and participation. As a result, the ASM reinforced the fact that the educational paradigm and audience of scientific meetings has changed. Bound through the hashtag #SCCT2019, social media allowed the research, education, networking and trends from this year's ASM to extend beyond the walls of the meeting with a record setting level of digital global reach. Using posts from Twitter as a prism of interests and response of the global cardiovascular CT community, this article presents the topics with the highest social media engagement from the 14th ASM.
