The methodology to calculate solid angle (Ω) for a point isotropic source and a hypothetical detector with a circular aperture is well established. Therefore, the aim of this report is to study effective solid angle (ΩE), considering now the attenuation in the medium and others effects of the radiation interaction with matter. Simulations were carried out using Monte Carlo method by means of MCNP6 code.
