TSA Changing Software at Airport Scanners-New Images Look More Like Stickmen Instead of Medical Images

Posted Feb 02 2011 7:34pm

The first airport to try out the new software is Las Vegas.  image Atlanta is another airport that will be testing and travelers can even see their images.  If you forget to take keys or whatever out you will be able to see the detection on the screen.  They look a lot better I must say and definitely are not as revealing and the images won’t be getting anyone excited any longer. 

Below is a reminder of what they look like now.  BD

Federal aviation officials are giving it another try. This time, they are not image looking as closely under travelers' clothes.

The Transportation Security Administration on Tuesday began testing a new, more modest body scanning system at three airports. They hope it will assuage critics' concerns that the nearly 500 full-body scanners at 78 airports reveal too much.
