All passengers going through security checkpoints at Pittsburgh International Airport will be subject to screening by high-tech body scanners starting today, government and airport officials said.
The move isn’t related to bomb threats investigated Friday at airports in the United States, England and Dubai.
“It’s a more advanced and secure way to detect threats,” Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Ann Davis said.
Pittsburgh received five body scanners this summer, valued at $170,000 apiece. They produce a two-sided image of a person’s body that resembles a chalk etching, with blurred facial features. In response to privacy concerns, TSA officers dealing directly with passengers don’t see scanned images; those who view images sit in a room with frosted glass so they can’t see passengers.
