But youâ€™ve probably never seen one quite like the new scanner at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport, which uses computed tomography (CT) technology first developed
for medicine. Unlike conventional x-ray scanners that see in two dimensions, CT machines scan in three dimensions.
TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said the goal of these scanners is better security.
"As far as passengers are concerned, weâ€™re hoping for fewer bag checks, and that will speed people through this checkpoint," she added.
BWI is one of 15 airports where the TSA is testing the scanners.
"The user interface is really intuitive. Itâ€™s like an iPad, so itâ€™s very easy,"
said Mark Laustra, of Analogic Corp. "Thereâ€™s no buttons to push, everything is done with your finger. Itâ€™s so revealing that laptops and electronics can be left inside a closed bag. And larger bins mean more storage, and therefore fewer bins to be loaded and unloaded. "Thatâ€™ll make it a lot easier," one passenger at BWI said. "I
think itâ€™s a great idea, especially having a dog.
Itâ€™s a lot easier for me if I donâ€™t have to hold my dog and unload
my laptop and everything from my backpack," said Alexandra Turano, who was flying with her service dog Samantha.
New technology at airport security checkpoints is poised to greet some of the more than 40 million people who will board flights over the next two-and-a-half weeks. The multi-faceted approach the Transportation Security Administration, the federal agency that oversees aviation safety, uses to prevent a dangerous situation from unfolding at 40,000 feet or inside the airport is not changing. But the technology TSA uses is being swapped out in some airports to meet growing threats. The biggest change passengers will see is how carry-on baggage is scanned. The machine uses computed tomography to look at items passing through it. The officer can move the item around on screen to look at it from different angles.
"The difference really is night and day in terms of what the operator
sees because the CT scan is three-dimensional versus two-dimensional," TSA Administrator David Pekoske said during a recent operational tour of Washington Dulles International Airport. Approximately 2,500 X-ray machines are in use at 440 airports around the country. Pekoske said the CT machines make it so easy for officers to detect items of concern that they do not need liquids or other items to be removed from the bag. However, for the time being, passengers are required to remove those normal items but can keep laptops in bags.
Tannen Maury EPA/REX/Shutter-stockGetting through security is the worst part of flying, which is why you should make sure you know the things that are most likely to get you flagged by TSA. And then thereâ€™s the full-body airport security scannersâ€”do they pose a threat to your health? It depends on the frequency with which youâ€™re exposed to them. Hereâ€™s what you need to know. Radiation is a known carcinogen. Studies from the aftermath of large scale radiation exposures (atomic bombs and nuclear accidents) showed an increased risk of cancer. "These were
exposures with large doses of radiation," explains Mark Terris, MD, an otolaryngology-head and neck surgeon and author of Bullets to Bandages: Life Inside the Israel Defense Forces. "Fortunately, airport scanners emit a very low
dose of radiation, so it does not pose a significant health risk.
It is estimated that we are exposed to the same dose of radiation every three to nine minutes of
daily living," he adds. Believe it or not, when you fly 30,000 feet, youâ€™re exposed to the same amount of radiation that you would be exposed to during a chest X-ray. Electromagnetic fields are also emitted by cell phones, ovens, radios, and basically anything you plug in. "So if there
is an electromagnetic field, then youâ€™re getting exposed to some level of radiation," says Dr. Boxer. Airport scanners emit ionizing radiation, which is the same type of radiation that is emitted from other forms of medical imaging (X-ray and CT scans), though at a much lower dose.
"This form of radiation will damage cells at high doses," says Dr. Terris. The scanner will expose pregnant women to some level of radiation, so they should be manually patted down instead. "When I was younger and completing
my medical internship, I avoided giving X-rays to pregnant women in all instances," says Dr. Boxer. The number one rule in medicine is "do no harm." Exposing a pregnant woman to X-rays and radiation can lead to fetal and developmental abnormalities. Cardiac problems can also occur and will affect the way the body is developing, particularly during the first three months of pregnancy. "Women who think they may
be pregnant, shouldnâ€™t use the scanner.
If youâ€™re not 100 percent certain youâ€™re not pregnant, you shouldnâ€™t take the risk.
So if you think thereâ€™s a chance, just choose the manual pat
down," says Dr. Boxer. Full-body airport security scanners generally have less radiation than the X-ray machines used medically. But remember: "Itâ€™s all about
frequency. If youâ€™re flying constantly, itâ€™s better to be cautious and
just have the manual pat down," says Dr. Boxer. "If you could
be exposed three or four times a day to the full-body scanner,
then prudent avoidance is a good idea," says Dr. Boxer. If you know youâ€™re going to fly multiple times in one day, ask for a pat down. Donâ€™t go through the scanner each time.

Travelers at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York will soon experience a test of more advanced, three-dimensional imaging to screen carry-on bags. The machines let screeners manipulate 3-D images to get a better idea of what's inside a bag. TSA has been running similar tests in Phoenix and Boston since last year. TSA uses 3-D imaging to scan checked bags, but until recently the scanners have been too large and heavy for use at security checkpoints. Instead, screeners use older X-ray screening equipment and inspection equipment technology to inspect carry-on bags. TSA Administrator David Pekoske says 3-D scanning will improve security right away. Â© 2018 The Associated Press.
HOUSTON â€” The Transportation Security Administration unveiled a state-of-the-art 3-D scanner for screening passengers and their belongings at the security checkpoint at Hobby Airport. The unit, which provides 3-D imaging that enhances explosives detection capabilities, is being tested in one lane at the checkpoint. Computed tomography (CT) is the latest checkpoint X-ray scanning equipment to enhance threat detection capabilities for carry-on baggage. The technology is similar to CT technology used in the medical field. Like existing CT technology used for checked baggage, the machines create such a clear picture of a bagâ€™s contents that computers can automatically detect explosives, including liquids. TSAâ€™s current screening technology for carry-on bags uses 2-D images. The CT technology applies sophisticated algorithms for the detection of explosives and other threats by creating a 3-D image that can be viewed and rotated 360 degrees for a thorough analysis by TSA officers.
If a bag requires further screening, TSA officers will inspect it to ensure that a threat item is not contained inside. "TSA here at
Houston Hobby is honored to be among the first
airports in the country to test this checkpoint technology,
" said Hector Vela, TSA HOU Federal Security Director. In the future, the goal is to keep laptops and 3-1-1 liquids inside of the bag during checkpoint screening. TSA has used CT units for scanning checked bags for any years, but this marks its first use at passenger screening checkpoints. The smaller-sized equipment shoots hundreds of images with an X-ray camera spinning around the conveyor belt to provide TSA officers with the three-dimensional views of the contents of a carry-on bag. "Partnerships are vital in providing the kind of customer service our passengers deserve," said HOU General Manager Liliana Rambo. TSA plans to have up to 40 units in place at airports around the nation by the end of the year, along with 16 units at federal testing facilities. Several manufacturers of CT checkpoint technology scanners are providing the devices for testing. The equipment at HOU is manufactured by IDSS. HOU is one of 15 airports initially testing the equipment.
A team of physicists at the University of Sussex are developing the science to create a safe and efficient 'paint' that can reveal, with terahertz (THz) radiation, the contents of luggage or objects hidden in clothing. THz radiation could replace the use of harmful X-rays and ultraviolet light in security scanners. It cannot pass through water, which is why it does not pose a health risk to living tissue, but it can penetrate fabrics, plastics and wood to give internal images similar to an X-ray. Lying between microwaves and infrared in the electromagnetic spectrum it, as with all other radiation, travels at the speed of lightâ€”but has a lower frequency than X-rays and ultraviolet.
Although its existence has been known for decades, the technology to harness it and use it in a meaningful capacity has not been readily available. However, a team at the Emergent Photonics Laboratory at the University of Sussex have come up with a simple demonstration that shows how the surfaces of objects up to any size can potentially be made into bright terahertz emitters. Thin semiconductors, which are materials that have a conductivity between metals (as very good conductors) and glass (which has no conductivity), are bright emitters that could be "painted" onto inexpensive materials to do the trick. With Luke's paper being published in such a prestigious journal, this is an exciting time for our team. More information: L. Peters et al.
