The government on Tuesday announced body scanners would be introduced at Australia’s eight international airports from 2011, as part of a $200 million upgrade of aviation security.
Mr Albanese said the body scanners would be used as a secondary screening measure.
"Everyone will go through the current system and then some people… will be picked out to go through the secondary screening," he told ABC Radio on Wednesday.
The new-technology scanners, being rolled out at airports in the United States, UK and Canada, do not reveal a naked body image to security staff.
"You can’t actually tell whether it’s male or female, let alone any other body parts," Mr Albanese said

Airport Body Scanning Raises Radiation Exposure, Committee Says
A backscatter x-ray is a machine that can render a three- dimensional image of people by scanning them for as long as 8 seconds, the report says. The technology has also raised privacy issues in countries including Germany because it yields images of the naked body.
The Committee cited the IAEA’s 1996 Basic Safety Standards agreement, drafted over three decades, that protects people from radiation. Frequent exposure to low doses of radiation can lead to cancer and birth defects, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Most of the scanners deliver less radiation than a passenger is likely to receive from cosmic rays while airborne, the report said. Scanned passengers may absorb from 0.1 to 5 microsieverts of radiation compared with 5 microsieverts on a flight from Dublin to Paris and 30 microsieverts between Frankfurt and Bangkok, the report said. A sievert is a unit of measure for radiation.
The story was carried by Yahoo News under the headline “Shah Rukh signs off sexy body-scan printouts at Heathrow”.
Khan’s reference to “girls” with printouts of his naked body scan can only refer to female airport security staff responsible for processing the images produced by the scanners, “professionals” who are supposed to instantly delete the images, according to Lord Adonis.
The revelation that airport security staff are completely abusing any notion of the professionalism promised by authorities by printing out and circulating images of naked body scans should set alarm bells ringing, especially in light of the fact that such images of minors break child pornography laws. British authorities have made it mandatory for travelers to submit to the naked body scanners when asked and have overturned previous rules that prevented under 18’s from passing through the devices.
Within days of the devices being introduced at Heathrow, staff have abused their professionalism and printed out naked scans of a famous actor for their own titillation. (end article excerpt)
If one calculates how much radiation they recieve from teeth x rays chest x rays , then once they get this system into airports it will be placed in court houses and possibly other public areanas.. this will how mayn times increase royr radiation dose wihch in turn effects your DNA. ?… Is this part of a Eugenics plan to reduce the population thru scientific methods…?
The Carbon emissions tax is Just that a scientific scam to decieve and trick you thru fear and "If you care you must do something for the planet now before its to late" frame of mind,… all the while they are relying on so called scientific methods peer reviewed by others with an adgenda in mind…
