TSA to Remove Body Scanners From Busy NY Airports

The Transportation Security Administration says it is removing full body scanners from New York's airports and moving them to less busy airports.

LaGuardia and Kennedy are among a number of major airports where the backscatter technology machines are being removed.

They will be replaced by machines that use millimeter wave technology to produce a more generic outline of a person's body, instead of the more specific images produced by the backscatter machines.   

The agency says the decision was made to speed up security checkpoints.
