'Body image' scanners ready for use in Fort Worth airport

Beginning Friday at two checkpoints at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport’s Terminal D, the Transportation Security Administration will begin using two "whole body image" machines that can look through your clothes and produce images of your body to detect metallic and non-metallic objects hidden under layers of clothing.

TSA will officially launch the millimeter wave machines at D/FW on Friday morning.
