      Following a radiation incident involving exposure or suspected exposure of individuals to ionizing radiation, a fast and reliable assessment of the contracted dose is essential for effective diagnosis and treatment. Such an assessment is possible through biomarkers, which allow the contracted dose to be deduced from the damage which the radiation has caused inside human blood cells. The mapping from the biomarker count (of damaged chromosomes, etc) to a dose estimate is facilitated through appropriate statistical models for count data. This research underpinning this case study deals with the choice of such models, the UQ strategies that derive from this, and the production of corresponding software. Impact is reported in form of adoption of these methods by national and European radiation protection units as well as inclusion into an ISO standard.
