Which airports have full body scanners? Across the US, 172 airports now have xray full body scanners, at airports security.

The millimeter wave machines were tested at Phoenix's Sky Harbor and LA's LAX airports back in in 2006/7. Americans didn't complain, so we now have the above 172 airports where we can either pass through the machines, or receive a body search/patdown from a TSA employee. The body imaging, or millimeter wave imaging machines, or TSA full body scanners, scan a passenger on all sides and transmit the image of the passenger's body, without clothing, to a TSA agent seated 50-100 feet away from the TSA scanner.

The object is to identify concealed (purposely or not) metal, plastics, ceramics, chemical materials and explosives via millimeter wave technology.
