San Jose International Airport in the US has installed full-body scanners as part of the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) plan to enhance security at all US airports.
The TSA has installed four scanners in Terminal A and plans to install an additional four in Terminal B by the end of June, according to MercuryNews.com.
Passengers have the option to either pass through the scanners, opt for a pat-down search or the regular test through a metal detector.
The scanners can produce a chalky image within 15 seconds of scanning and will be able to detect nonmetallic and plastic explosives.
The TSA has so far installed 100 full-body scanners at 31 US airports and plans to install 1,000 by 2011.
