Caption: Biometric hand scanning. Man having the back of his hand screened by a biometric scanner. This scanner is identifying him by collecting information from the unique pattern of blood vessels in the skin of his hand, a technique known as hand vascular pattern recognition (VPR). Other parts of the body used for biometric scanning include eyes, fingerprints and the contours of the face. Photographed at the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington, UK.
