Whole body imaging (WBI) refers to the internal display of the entire body in a single procedure.

It may refer to one of two types of body imaging technologies used for security screening such as in airports:

In medical imaging, it may also refer to full-body CT scan or magnetic resonance imaging.

The core of infra-red thermal difference detection is imaging which detects and processes a break in the established thermal balance between the clothes and a hidden object. The IR camera detects the heat radiating from even a tiny object, producing a dark/light shape. It is irrelevant how long an object is concealed under clothing as a new temperature imprint is created every time it is scanned.
