Full-Body Scanning Machines Procurement in the US
This report is intended to assist buyers of full-body scanning machines. Full-body scanning machines detect objects on an individual’s body by having them remain within the machine while part of the device moves around the body to generate a scanned image. Unlike metal detectors, full-body scanning machines can detect nonmetal objects while providing a detailed image of any object on a person's body. Full-body scanning machines differ from X-ray inspection systems in that they are meant for people, rather than inanimate objects. This report covers both millimeter wave and X-ray (backscatter) scanners. Common buyers include airports, prisons, embassies, military bases and corporations. This report does not include metal detectors, walk-through scanners or devices used for medical imaging.
