Airports in the New York City area will receive full-body scanners "in the coming weeks," according to the Transportation Security Administration. TSA officials will select passengers randomly to pass through the scanners. While some groups say the images produced by the scanners raise privacy concerns, the TSA notes that the images are deleted about 20 seconds after the traveler passes through the scanner. The TSA said "installation issues" caused the delay with installing the scanners at the New York airports.
