Thanks to a new type of X-ray scanner unveiled in Australia, annoyed TSA agents won’t have to send you to a hospital for a body cavity scan, they can do it in-house. Officials say that more than 4,600 man-hours were wasted last year in hospitals waiting for scans. From the article: “Home Affairs Minister Brendan O’Connor said the scanners would also help innocent travelers. ‘The option of an internal body scan will more quickly exonerate the innocent and ensure a minimum of delay for legitimate travelers,’ Mr O’Connor said.”
