In this paper, the rth-order univariate Hermite distributions are proposed to model the number of dicentrics in biological dosimetry. These families of distributions are introduced from compound Poisson process modelling. Regression models appropriate for analysing the number of dicentrics as a function of doses of radiation are presented, and an example of application is also given.
