From ABC San Francisco:

“Hero Bay Area pilot Sully Sullenberger is adding his voice to growing opposition among pilots and flight attendants to those airport body scanners.

“They’re concerned about the radiation they’re exposed to each time they go through the devices. The levels are much lower than a normal X-ray, but if you travel a lot, it can build up.

“‘I think it’s unnecessary for the flight crew to go through them first, and second, I think it poses some radiation risk,’” said Sullenberger.
