Letter to the editor

Security in the nation's airports could be enhanced by requiring that registered X-ray technologists monitor all machines at airports.

These personnel are registered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Using this organization, the government knows it has qualified personnel to protect the public against unnecessary radiation and who are trained for a minimum of two years and would make less mistakes in reviewing contents as they passed through the monitor. These personnel are already employed at all Department of Veterans Affairs facilities.
