(HealthDay) -- The heightened interest in security devices, prompted by the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, has been a boon to the biomedical technology sector of the beleaguered U.S. stock market, reports ABCNews.com.

Among the many devices sparking interest are a low-energy X-ray machine that looks at passengers rather than luggage, infrared cameras and even radar devices, says this other ABCNews.com story.
