Pearson International Airport in Canada is set to use the services of a controversial screening technology which allows the passengers to be viewed ‘naked’.

The $200,000 scanner was successfully tested for six months at another Canadian airport.

The device displays black and white images of a person and is able to detect weapons within 30 seconds.

The black and white images are produced by X-rays and reveal no facial features, therefore offering complete anonymity.
