How Realistic Is Threat Image Projection for X-ray Baggage Screening?

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Sensors (Basel, Switzerland) [Sensors (Basel)] 2022 Mar 13; Vol. 22 (6). Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Mar 13.

Abstract: At airports, security officers (screeners) inspect X-ray images of passenger baggage in order to prevent threat items (bombs, guns, knives, etc.) from being brought onto an aircraft. Because threat items rarely occur, many airports use a threat-image-p...
