Body Scanner

Smiths Detection’s B-Scan full-body scanner uses low-dose rate transmission X-ray technology to screen people for contraband concealed internally or externally on the body. In a non-intrusive single pass using a smaller dose than backscatter X-ray systems, the B-Scan provides a high-resolution, head-to-toe image of a person in less than seven seconds. A fixed X-ray component design results in an easily maintained, reliable mechanical construction for use in scanning for smuggled drugs, guns, knives and other weapons, cell phones and other contraband, according to the company.
