TSA Hopes to Enhance Privacy with New Scanning Software


Advanced Image Processing in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (Signal Processing and Communications)
Feb 2, 2011 — TSA Administrator John Pistole announced Tuesday that his agency is testing new software for its advanced imaging technology (AIT) machines that the TSA says "eliminates passenger-specific images and instead auto-detects potential threat items and indicates their location on a generic outline of a person." The software uses the same generic outline for all passengers, and if no potential threat items are detected, an "OK" will appear on the monitor with no outline.
