Federal officers are screening some carry-on luggage with three-D scanning know-how, which they are saying improves the power to seek out bombs.
The Transportation Safety Administration stated Thursday that it’s testing computed tomography, or CT, scanning at one checkpoint at Phoenix Sky Harbor Worldwide Airport.
The know-how is already used for screening checked baggage.
CT scanners create a three-D picture that may be rotated to provide screeners a greater look. Suspicious luggage could be pulled apart and opened by screeners.
The check is being run with American Airways. TSA says it’ll broaden the check to Boston’s Logan Airport later this month.
