New body scanners being installed this week at Blue Grass Airport

Body scanners at Blue Grass Airport will replace metal detectors as the primary passenger screening method. The "advanced imaging technology" scanners are being installed and workers are being trained this week. If the machine detects an unusual item on a passenger, the screener will see a generic outline of a human form — not the actual outline of the passenger's body — with a box indicating the part of the body where the anomaly is.
