Airports install full-body scanners

Body scanning machines that some say are too revealing have been introduced on a trial basis at 10 U.S. airports. Reagan National Airport in Washington, DC, is the latest to use the millimeter-wave scanners from L-3 Communications.

To deal with privacy concerns, the Transportation Security Administration is offering protections on whole-body scanning, including blurring the faces on images of passengers being screened, examining the images in a remote room and offering no possibility for images to be stored.

Airport rolls out full-body scanning from the Denver Post.
