1. What is a backscatter?

2. What is a strip search?

I assume you are referring to secutity screenings?

Isn't backscatter just imaging using X-rays reflected from the target, rather than ones that are absorbed or passed through?

I don't know what backscatter means, but the above explanation seems plausible.

A "strip search" refers to when security guards or police "strip you down" -- that is, remove your clothing -- to see if you're hiding anything.

Please take a look at this podcast then tell me what is a backscatter:

What I am trying to know is that if a backscatter can see your private parts as well?
