Hello everybody. Can anyone please tell me whether the security machine at the entrance to the court building in Markham Road (Ontario) is an x-ray machine or metal detector? I am talking about that machine you walk through which similar to at the airport security one.

Any danger to a pregnant woman ?

I don't think they use x-ray detectors on people, it's a metal scanner, so it's safe
you can "always" request a walkround and physical search

""From a radiation standpoint there has been no evidence that there is really any untoward effect from the use of this device [backscatter scanner], so I would not be concerned about it from a radiation dose standpoint – the issues of personal privacy are a different thing," he said. The health effects of the more common millimeter wave scanner are largely unknown, and at least one expert believes a safety study is warranted. "I am very interested in performing a National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements study on the use of millimeter-wave security screening systems," said Thomas S. Tenforde, council president. However, no long-term studies have been done on the health effects of millimeter wave scanners."

think that it's VERY low level x-ray, you'd get more radiation from standing out in the sun LOLZ

also it would depend if your going through them everyday

but pretty sure there safe
