Full-body scanners at airports replaced with less-revealing, low radiation machines

June 3, 2013

The remaining 250 machines were removed about two weeks before the June 1st deadline set by Congress.

Passengers still have to undergo full-body scans. However, the scanners now use radio waves that produce a less-detailed image.
