    Saw this on the military channel. X-rays do come out good however the downside is it will take a LOOOOONG time to finish a busy port... if u get to finish it!

    I put one in a former Soiet Union country as part of a technical assistance program. I arrived about the time I was getting ready to leave, but I've heard that it has had a lot of problems and support has been spotty. They are being used effectively in the US, from what I have heard

    I have never seen one of these,but I think that it might be very useful tool for the US Border Patrol.
