    Default Re: TSA is ever vigilant

    As a radiologist, a simple low energy digital x ray is all that is needed of a PLASTIC rod tube.

    My local airport is a rural airport and they have a CT scanner for checked baggage. I know because after our bags are tagged we have to hand carry them to the scanner. A CT would be able to see the rod in a PVC rod tube,

    With a CT scan with 3D digital reconstruction, they can create a virtual image of the bag contents. Maybe that technology will make it into the TSA.

    3D reconstruction of a distal clavicle fracture. The 3D at the upper left is pre-op. The regular X-ray image 2nd row right is not preop but much later after removal of hardware. See screw hole defects in the bones.

    Like any other employer, they have to recruit from the human race for a job that has little to recommend it. Even more so than city cops they have to be right EVERY time. Bad guys can try, and fail a lot and only have to get lucky once. Like most top-downs, the lower levels have all the responsibility and zero control. It's a stressful job that makes the paycheck seem smaller the longer you work for it.
