MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

The Transportation Security Administration is getting rid of X-ray body scanners at U.S. airports that show a naked image of travelers.

Congress made the mandate to remove the body scanners by June because of privacy concerns. Another type of scanner will still be in place, showing a generic image that will still allow agents to look for objects on travelers.

Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is not affected by the discontinued body scanners. Airport spokesman Pat Hogan said the TSA only uses millimeter wave scanner technology at MSP.
