The agency installed the technology on existing scanners at selected airports, but said Wednesday it was buying additional units.

"Advanced imaging technology is one of the best layers of security we have to address the threats of today and tomorrow," TSA Administrator John Pistole said in a statement. "We remain committed to deploying this integral counterterrorism tool in order to ensure the highest level of security for the traveling public. "

TSA purchased 300 of the millimeter wave Advanced Imaging Technology machines.
