When radionuclides decay by cascading photons, the accuracy of the measured nuclide activity may be affected by true coincidence
summing effects. The effects can be quantified by Monte Carlo simulations that can handle correlated γ-and X-ray emissions
from a radionuclide. Analysis techniques are also available commercially to correct for the effects due to cascading γ-rays.
The MCNP-CP code was used to compute the effects in high purity germanium detectors for several commonly used nuclides and
geometries and the results were compared to measurements and an analysis technique. Excellent agreement in true coincidence
summing corrections predicted by MCNP-CP and the analysis technique was obtained. In addition, the X-ray true coincidence
summing effects were evaluated.
