N2 - Apart from an experimental determination of the relevant correction factors or a full Monte Carlo simulation, the most popular computational approach to the problem of true coincidence summing effects is the point-source approximation. An improvement of this method is based on the so-called Linear-to-square or "Third curve" of gamma-ray spectrometry.
