Manchester airport "naked" scanner

The airport security increased by the introduction today of a new scanner which reproduces naked images of the passengers. The travellers departing from Terminal 2 at Manchester airport will be asked if they have something against being strip-checked without removing their clothes. If the 80000 pounds scanner proves successfully, then it will be implemented at all UK airports. The "naked" scanning machine was already adopted in United States where the Aerial Transport Security Agency ordered last week 1000 pieces from Rapiscan Systems Manufacturer. The images are not considered erotic or pornographic but just a mild X-ray. According to airport officials 99% of the people will agree the new procedure if they get faster through the queues.

when scanned the privacy is lost for a couple of seconds,,,if walking naked you are exposed continuously,,that's the difference.
