How Do X-ray Baggage Scanners Work?

Posted by Admin on April, 18, 2023

X-ray baggage scanners use electromagnetic radiation, also called as X-rays, used to create images of items in the bags or packages. This process involves transmitting X-rays through the object being scanned and then capturing the image using a detector.

When a beam of X-rays transmits through an object, some of the rays are observed by the object and the rest pass through it. The rays that pass through the object are captured on a detector that produces visible light when struck by X-rays. The visible light was then converted to a signal that created an image of the items present inside the object.

The image produced by the scanner shows different items inside the bag or package, such as clothing, food, metals, dangerous weapons, etc. The image is formed by analysing the levels of X-ray absorption by the different items present inside the bag. Materials with high densities, like metals, absorb more rays and appear brighter on the captured image, while materials with low densities absorb only a few rays and appear dark in the image.

To detect potential security threats such as weapons and explosives, these X-ray baggage scanners are integrated with advanced software. This software is used to analyse the density and shape of the items inside the bag within the scanned image to identify potential hazards. The images produced by the scanner are viewed by trained security personnel, who are responsible for interpreting the images and assessing whether any further action is required, such as additional screening.

Overall, the X-ray baggage scanners play a crucial role in maintaining airport, railway station and transport hub security by helping to prevent potentially hazardous items. Therefore, X-ray baggage scanners are widely recognised as an essential machine for safeguarding passengers and reducing security risks while travelling.
