Liquid-scanning technology boosts airport security
Uniquely combining Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and X-ray technology, scientists unlocked new threat technology that could make airport travel faster and safer.
This advanced technology called MagRay quickly and accurate determines whether a concealed liquid is dangerous or benign—apple juice or highly explosive material. It can see through thick materials, and it works far better than the traditional X-ray technology.
