O'Hare, Midway to get new body scanning software

July 21, 2011 (CHICAGO)

Many passengers complained the scanners, which can see through clothing, also expose private parts.

The new software will show only a generic outline of a person's body; but, the scanners will still be able to recognize items on the passenger that could pose a security threat.

The TSA plans to roll out the new technology at 40 airports, including O'Hare and Midway.
