Subatomic Particle Question

In light of the recent threats in NYC, I have been trying to think of ways that explosive materials can be detected in a fast and accurate fashion. (I think it's a joke that they just realized that the subways are a target. I'm sure they have been a target from day 1) On the news today they were showing officers standing in the stations checking the bags of passengers and people were complaining that they were missing their trains (which is also a joke because they would all throw a fit and blame the same authorities if something did explode in the tunnel). What I was thinking is, can some sort of a device be created that "shoots", for a lack of better term, subatomic particles through people and their belongings that then catches them on the other side, analyzes them and detects any changes in them? I'm thinking that if a particle can be identified that changes its properties after passing through explosive materials, then that particle could be used to detect explosives. Subatomic particles can pass through mass, correct? If not, then throw this idea out the window but if so then this would be an easy way to detect explosive devices. I know nothing about subatomic particles, that's probably more than obvious to those that do, so this can be an entirely impossible scenario but I figured I'd throw it out there and see if there's someone on here that knows enough about them to say if this is possible. Does anyone think that this can work?
