Backscatter X-ray machines are much more sophisticated than the medical X-ray machines. The layout of both machines are also totally different. The X-ray tube of the medical X-ray machines images the sensor sandwich of the subject. However, the X-ray tube located at the side of the backscatter X-ray machines images the side of the person body. The backscatter X-ray machines are much weaker than the machines that are being used in the hospitals by the doctors. The rays of backscatter X-ray machines do not go through the flesh of the body.
