Anyone knows what kind of body scanner the Budapest (BUD) airport uses?

In early October 2018, they were using only walk through metal detectors. I don't recall seeing any full body scanners.

On 1st of March i have been body scanned, after i passed through metal detector-physicaly searched. They asked me to stand with my hands open between two big metal plates for a few seconds. At that point i didn't knew what it was.I thought it was a bigger metal detector........... but its seems it was a body scanner that i wasn't aware of and they didn't inform me about it.

There have been body scanners at BUD for some time now and generally, WTMD is the default but the body scanner is for those randomly selected.. I have seen signs mentioning that one is able to opt out and I have opted out before without any issues.

I have also been curious about what type of scanner is present, as it reminds me more of the old backscatter ones than the MMW scanners that I am used to seeing. The scanners at EDI looked similar to these scanners, but I am not sure about the type of either.
