The doses, from what I have read, are in the microSv range- truly
insignificant.  It's the privacy invasion that is excessive.  They say that
passengers are given a choice. They can go through the body scanner or be
subject to a pat-down.  Or, in other words: "Either let us peek through
your clothes or we'll feel you up!"  In the USA freedom really has become
just another word for nothing left to lose.
