I believe dermal fillers show on MRI. It may be more noticeable if it’s in a region such as the penis as opposed to the face. By that I mean it’s probably more common to see fillers in the face than the penis. I believe silicone stands out the most from what I’ve read online. I believe dermal fillers show up as shadows on X-rays. I’m not a doctor just my two cents.

Are we sure these aren't just random inspections which is a part of Airport protocol? I imagine HA being even less detectable because it isn't very particulate like PMMA; can anyone here say for certain that they were specifically questioned regarding their genital area??
I've been randomly audited at airport many times without any such questions or alarm. Unless someone can say for certain that they were singled out for suspicions that stemmed from filler treatment in their penis, I'm inclined to believe it was coincidental. I could be wrong, and perhaps there is something about the abundance of that specific-collagen type that warrants scrutiny (not all collagen your body produces are the same). I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around why it would be detectable at an airport-grade scanner designed to pick up on contraband. No one has explicitly confirmed whether or not airport security made that distinction in this thread, so can any of you clarify that your enhanced penis was indeed confirmed as the culprit?
As I mentioned initially, I've flown a dozen times (at least) spanning a decade since my first treatment and not a single time was I asked about what could be "down there." And not only that, but I'd be willing to bet that I've got more filler product, particles, and collagen than the average user of this forum, so I would especially stick out like a sore thumb, yet I haven't gotten the reaction some of you suggest is possible. I would really like to know.
If there is a significant difference in the level of water molecules in it vs the surrounding tissue, it might very well. But anecdotally there have been studies of radiologists missing absurd things in scans or xrays because they are focused on looking for something else...like your hip. They aren't paying attention to your dick. If you are worried just say you don't know what it is. If they want to check it out, just don't and say your aren't concerned. You don't need to explain anything. Play dumb.
Take a look at the scan screen after and see where they are picking something up. I get stopped if I have pants with an internal zip like lululemon or have a rolled up tissue in the pocket. Surface level stuff. Honestly, find this pretty amusing, people should post their experiences. Look at the screen and tell if it is picking up your bulge.
Sorry it took so long to get back to you but it shows up on the full body scan. It looks like white shading. I was patted down afterwards and quickly moved on once they felt it was me. I remember someone else posted the same experience on here a couple of years ago. I found it amusing....
When I was traveling back and forth for treatments I never got stopped. But since then, EVERY SINGLE TIME I fly I get pulled to the side, given the twice over with the wand, asked repeatedly if I have anything in my pockets or pants, get groped, and occasionally even get the gun powder residue test. I have asked on several occasions why and what do they think I am doing and never been answered. This happens regardless of if I do the walk through scanner or the 360 body scanner.
It's funny y'all mention the air port. I've been to avanti 3 times. I fly into and out of San Diego everytime. Never had a problem. This past time I forgot to remove the wrap around my Dick. I hit on the scanner. They made me go again. I hit again. They pulled me to side behind the divider. They questioned me, brought the dogs, used a wand, and felt me up. The amount of groping they did I made the cringe joke of next time they could buy me a drink first. They laughed it off. They let me through without any awkward questions. But lesson learned don't forget to remove the bandage before going through check-in
