In one study of accuracy, 26 certified ABFO diplomates (that is, the best-regarded in the field) (53) viewed photographs of bitemarks made in human skin from three criminal cases and one bitemark made in cheese.
As such, it is problematic that the field has resisted proficiency testing as a means to determine whether practitioners can accurately employ their methodology: "Previous attempts by the ABFO to achieve some measure of bitemark examiner outcome calibration have repeatedly been repudiated by the organization.
(66) Equally disturbing was the ABFO's decision to postpone publishing the results "until the organization can tweak the design of the study and conduct it again, a process that's expected to take at least a year." (67) In effect, ABFO wanted a do-over.
TFSC was also alarmed that the ABFO study was not published due to "political and organizational pressures." (73) In the Commission's view, "such a resistance to publish scientific data contradicts the ethical and professional obligations of the profession as a whole, and is especially disconcerting when one considers the life and liberty interests at stake in criminal cases."
