TSA Revises Scanners

Wednesday, July 20, 2011 - 3:38pm

Controversial "full body" scanners updated to show more modest images.

The Transportation Security Administration is updating its imaging software at airports as part of an effort to increase passenger privacy.

The new software will eliminate passenger-specific images.

Screeners will see a generic outline of a person's body on a monitor attached to a scanner.

The software will also detect metallic and non-metallic concealed items.

TSA officials say the new imaging software will improve the passenger experience at checkpoint, while still providing a high level of security.
