What Kind of Body Scanner Does Your Airport Have?

Here’s a searchable guide to body scanners in U.S. airports. X-ray "backscatter" machines have faced concerns about the potential health risks associated with them. Nearly 100 backscatters were removed from major airports recently to speed up lines. But many airports still have them. Find out whether you may encounter an X-ray scanner this holiday season by entering your address, airport code, city or ZIP code below. If your airport doesn't come up, it doesn't use either type of body scanner.
