New software will soon be installed in some airport body scanners that will allow travelers to be screened without having naked digital images created of them, the Transportation Security Administration announced on Wednesday. The full-body scanners, which now operate at 78 airports throughout the U.S., use low levels of radiation that create an image of travelers that TSA officials use to identify any hidden weapons or contraband. Once installed, the new software enables the scanners to...
