Please feel free to update the list with any new information you have especially regarding non-US airports.
Thank you very much in advance.
Airports WITH body scanners:
ABQ (Lane 7, on the far right side of the checkpoint when facing it. Use lane 1-6)
BWI (A,B,D concourse no way to avoid them but not primary)
CLE (Concourse A no scanners. Concourse B two scanners; TSA tells you where to go or not. Concourse C lanes 6&7 have scanners; can be avoided by choosing other lane.)
DCA (are they still there?)
DFW (only Terminal D, checkpoints 18&22)
IAH (Terminal E but you get choice of lanes)
IND (both A and B concourse on checkpoint 3, choice of lanes with no scanner)
JAX (1 scanner, avoid if taking the TSA line to the left, the two lanes on the right funnel to the scanner)
JFK (not on the TSA list but somebody mentioned it)
LAS (That new A/B/C checkpoint upstairs has it. Not primary. The old C checkpoint by the train does not have it.)
LAX (T5 checkpoint - DL/NW concourse+AeroMexico. Use T6 instead and take underground tunnel to T5)
PHX (only in checkpoint B & D at terminal 4--not primary at the D checkpoint. I don't think I've even seen it to be honest.)
RDU (only in T2 and not as primary)
ROC (apparently not yet in operation but machine is there)
SFO (In international terminal, primary but optional. None at T1 Gates 20-36, domestic.)
SLC (T2 (DL) but not T1)
TPA (Airside A and Airside E checkpoint - AC/DL/NW/UA)
Airports WITHOUT Bodyscanners:
JFK in DL terminal 2/3.
LAX (T1 WN/US, T3 AS/VX)
ORD (not on the TSA list, T1 definitely clear)

Also, does anyone know which particular ones use millimeter wave technology and which particular ones use backscatter x-ray technology? I know the one at ABQ is an L-3 ProVision millimeter wave scanner.

I think most major Canadian airports have them now. The government ordered 44 scanners in January and said they would be in use at 11 airports within a couple of months. Also found news items from YVR, YWG and YUL dated February saying they were in use.I believe they are initially being used only for passengers to the US who are selected for secondary screening.

Anyone know if any airports in Australia are getting them? I have flown in and out of MEL, BNE, SYD, ADL several times this year, both international and domestic terminals, and yet to see these body scanners in place anywhere here...
