(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - New airport scanning software that reveals weapons without revealing everything else about you is making its debut at Indianapolis International Airport.

The software is an upgrade to the high-tech radio wave scanners which have drawn criticism for producing body images that leave little to the imagination.

The new version projects any suspicious hotspots onto a generic silhouette.

You'll still face a patdown search if anything shows up.

For now, about a quarter of travelers flying out of Indianapolis will go through the upgraded scanner, while TSA officers are trained on the software.

All scanners should use the new software within a couple of weeks.

TSA Spokesman Jim Fotenos says Indy is the fourth airport to install the software.

Fort Wayne and 36 others will make the switch over the next several months.
