For some reason I always beep so I wind up getting a pat down. I have no problem with the pat down but Iím a little on the fence when it comes to the body scan. If you fly for business or are a flight crew, thatís a lot of radiation over time. They say itís a very low dose but i'm not too sure if I believe them. Some reports conflict on the amounts of radiation and it also depends on what type of scanner the airport is using, there are different types. When I flew in August I did go through the scanner as OíHare airport was one of the first to use them. An expert was asked if the underwear bomber had gone through the new pat down would it have been detected. He answered ďmore than likely notĒ I still think Iíll stick to the pat down until Iím forced to do the scan.
