BodySearch X-ray surveillance. Front X-ray view of a male subject during BodySearch surveillance. Revealed on the body are bags of cocaine (shoulder, waist); scalpel blades (chest); coin, metal gun and plexiglass knife (legs). In 1996 BodySearch scanning designed by American Science & Engineering is one of the most advanced X-ray surveillance techniques. It penetrates clothing to reveal soft objects missed by normal security detectors, including plastic explosives. Radiation is 1/7000th that of a normal X-ray; back and front views are obtained in under a minute. It may be used in airports, prisons, and in industry.
