Maybe as a medical software consultant, Holli should look at the actual images that the machines produce. They're nowhere near naked, unless you consider a chalky fuzzy rendition of a human body nearly naked. Does she insist on staying clothed during medical exams because that too could be humiliating?

I've done my research, and the only a person in a remote room sees my image. Then it's deleted. If it keeps me safe, I'm for it.

In an age where a man was caught trying to blow up a plane by hiding a bomb in his underwear, I'm perfectly fine with these machines looking for dangerous items on people. And if they get to the point where it's a standard, cartoonish image, even better.
