US may soon allow laptops, liquids in carry-on bags at airport security checkpoints

The United States may soon allow passengers to keep liquids and laptops in their carry-on bags at airport security checkpoints, if screening technology being tested at select airports is widely adopted.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) on Monday announced the plan to test computed tomography (CT) scanners for carry-on bags, with up to 40 units expected to be in place at US airports by the end of year.

The X-ray scanning equipment creates 3D images that can be analysed on three axes for explosives and other threats. The CT technology is similar to what is used for medical imaging.
