The B-SCAN x-ray people scanning series is designed for prison and other security checkpoint screening applications by Smiths Detection of Morristown, New Jersey. The scanners locate threats and contraband concealed in body cavities, artificial limbs, or on a person. In a nonintrusive single pass, using a smaller dose than backscatter x-ray, the scanner provides a high-resolution image of the total person in less than seven seconds. Imaging enhancement tools provide the operator with information to quickly and accurately evaluate the image for concealed objects. Besides use in prisons, they are used in customs, airports, and mining operations.
