Either that or the traditional metal detector. The full body scanner just happened to be the scanner they were using for the "Elite Access" line. Long story short, I had to fly cross country for my great-aunt's funeral last minute. My dad travels a lot, and my whole family was able to fly out on frequent flier miles, and because it was booked with his account, my boarding pass stated "Elite Access." This helped tremendously at the airport coming back home, which was the airport that had the full body scanner.
I did hear one story of someone wearing a wire bra, which triggered the full body scanner. The passenger had the pat down, which was done by a female TSA agent, since she was a female passenger.
