Why Passive Millimeter-Wave Imaging?
All Natural objects whose temperatures are above absolute zero emit passive millimeter-wave radiation.
Millimeter-waves are much more effective (Lower attenuation) than infrared in poor weather conditions such as fog, clouds, snow, millimeter-waves have natural appearances.
The amount of radiation emitted in the millimeter-wave range is 108 times smaller than the amount emitted in the infrared range.
Rapiscan Systems’ Graphical User Interface (GUI) is an easy to understand tool - operators can identify hidden objects without confusion or delay. With training, a WaveScan 200 user can identify and locate hidden objects in realtime by observing event icons and detection boxes on a fullmotion video images. Each event’s video and passive millimeter
wave images are digitally archived for later review, analysis, or videntiary
use. The JPEG images stored are millimeter wave images with no anatomical detail, thereby addressing privacy concerns.

Some of that made my brain go-BOING!
But, one thing that I might have gleaned from this, do you think it could be used to categorize or read peoples DNA?
Is this another totally different usage possibility?
Or am I getting totally paranoid?
The development of THz sources, including table-top laser-based sources as well as synchrotrons and FELs, with extremely high THz field amplitudes and with considerable control over the field temporal profile are underway.
These sources will enable control over motions of molecules and ions, including control over collective structure and dynamics, as well as electronic responses.
These features enable THz excitation of material responses whose temporal evolution may be probed with additional THz pulses or with light at other wavelengths.
Thus nonlinear spectroscopy will be conducted using THz excitation pulses. Initial efforts are under way, with most of the early results coming from the physics community studying systems such as Rydberg states of isolated atoms and intersubband transitions in semiconductor quantum wells or quantum dots.

Why does it all have to be hypothetical? More sheeples got the h1n1 swine flu without long term testing and folks want 10 years of studies on body scanners?

The human body has the ability to adaptation to new fields of radiation. Remember we are smart beings and given time we will all get used to those radiations.
Everything here on earth is nature or is from nature.

Dear G, please actually attempt to refute the cited data by citing other data that contradicts it. Or are you being sarcastic?

Experts: CT Scans Linked To Radiation Overdoses
ATLANTA -- CT scans can be a lifesaving tool, but they also can cause radiation overdoses. Experts say it’s happening more and more at hospitals across the country and perhaps in Georgia. Miscalibrated machines or operator error is exposing patients to dangerous doses of radiation.
Screener charged in attack over genitalia jokes
Miami » A Miami International Airport federal security screener has been Arrested for allegedly using an expandable Police baton to beat up a co-worker.
The source of their conflict, Police say: daily ribbing about the size of the screener's Genitalia.
Screener Rolando Negrin's private body parts were observed by his Transportation Security Administration colleagues conducting training on the Airport's full-body imaging
