  • Well for one, the fully body scanners use high levels of radiation where the metal detectors do not - they use a magnetic field . And the metal detectors don't create a naked body image and record it. So there is a HUGE difference.

  • Big difference. Nobody in another room is looking at a naked image of my children, me, or my husband and storing them in a database with a metal detector. We also aren't getting radiated.
