TSA to use less invasive body scanners

Wednesday, July 20, 2011 - 5:02pm

The Transportation Safety Administration is updating its imaging software at airports to increase passenger privacy.

The new software on body scanners will eliminate passenger-specific images. With the new software, 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.
