There is ample information on Mr. McCluskey’s radiation exposure in peer reviewed literature including the October 1983 issue of Health Physics, the journal of the Health Physics Society.

As a journalist I would like to calculate the dose that Harold McCluskey (Mr Atomic) received after his accident with Am 241 where he ingested/inhaled about 10 mBq. This was largely chelated, and lowered to about 55 kBq and he died 11 years later at 78 of heart failure that he already suffered from before the accident. I would very much like to find out what all this means in dose-terms.
