Security at the Tallahassee International Airport (TLH) will soon include computed tomography (CT) scanners.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will install CT scanners in the security checkpoint at TLH, which have the ability to scan internal images of baggage non-invasively.
When the CT scanners are in use, travelers do not need to remove electronics or travel-size liquids from carry-on luggage.
“The CT technology utilizes a sophisticated algorithm to analyze the content of the bag and will allow TSA officers to rotate the image and ascertain that no threats are contained in the bag without needing to open the suitcase,” said Brian Cahill, TSA’s Federal Security Director for TLH and other airports in Northern Florida. “Reducing the number of bags that need a visual inspection improves the security experience.”
