The Bekaran deep-tissue scanner was a hand-held medical device used for the comprehensive scanning of a subject's anatomy. It was a device which Owen Harper was particularly fond of. (PROSE: Bay of the Dead)

It was a small, rectangular device with a series of lens on a side (PROSE: Slow Decay) and a screen the size of a pocket calculator. (PROSE: Another Life) The Bekaran scanner allowed the user to see internal organs without surgery, with much greater accuracy and definition than an X-ray machine or an MRI scanner. (PROSE: Another Life) It was hooked up to Torchwood Three's wireless network. (PROSE: Slow Decay)

Torchwood Three had several Bekaran scanners, one of which was bought by Toshiko Sato while searching for shoes on eBay. (PROSE: Another Life) When studying the team after the incident with the Amok, Owen Harper used the Bekaran scanner. (PROSE: Border Princes) He later brought it to Megan Tegg to introduce her to Torchwood. (PROSE: Another Life) Owen later used it to remotely examine Marianne Till. (PROSE: Slow Decay) When investigating if the zombies found in Cardiff were actually undead humans, Jack Harkness and Ianto Jones used Owen's Bekaran scanner to examine the one they captured. (PROSE: Bay of the Dead) A few days later, Jack again used the device, this time to give Alexander Martin a full medical scan prior to offering him the position of medical officer. (PROSE: The House That Jack Built) Gwen Cooper used it to discover that Leon Foiret's neutrons were disappearing. (AUDIO: Lost Souls)
