Scientific evidence

 

Recent studies conclude that the PIC system consistently delivers accuracy (both trueness and precision) that's well below the present consensus of acceptable discrepancies for a full arch passive fit. 

PIC dental - scientific evidence

And many more

The above is just a sample: there are over 15 peer-reviewed scientific publications and reports about the PIC system.
