America's Transportation Security Administration says controversial X-ray security scanners that caused an uproar for showing revealing images of passengers are going to be retired from all US airports.
The decision came after manufacturer Rapiscan failed to develop less invasive imaging software on time.
It will remove all 174 full-body scanners from airports by the end of May.
The scanners aimed to screen passengers for concealed weapons and other prohibited items but created a stir for showing the contour of the body with too much detail.
