Today, the TSA announced that it will stop the use of its x-ray scanners in airports. Rapiscan, the maker of the x-ray scanners at many airports across the country, has been unable to address security concerns regarding the machines. As such, the TSA will no longer be using scanners made by this company. However, that is not to say that the TSA will stop using full-body scanners altogether. There are other scanners made by a company called L-3 Communications. These scanners do not produce the detailed naked body image of the Rapiscan machines, and the TSA will continue to use these scanners at the airport.
Let's just hope that the TSA does not replace these x-ray scanners with these molecular scanners. They are far more powerful than the scanners that are currently in use at the airport, and the Department of Homeland Security has already been testing them out.
Of course, you could opt out of going through the machine, although then they may have to give you a nice pat-down because apparently at the airport, it is presumed that you are guilty until they can prove you innocent.
