[Gate-users] Implementation of accolinearity in PET Simulations

I am working on some simulations of PET Devices. We would like to implement accolinearity in the particle source. I see from documentation there is no accolinearity in backToBack source. But there is a feature in source code, setAccolinearityFlag that is undocumented.
I have my particle source implemented as
/gate/source/F18SphereSource/setAccoValue 135 deg
I’ve found that this does seem to have a noticeable impact on results, and it looks like it does modify the particle directions. Questions I have are
(1) Is this the best way to implement accolinearity
(2) If one, what value would be best to use for “setAccoValue”
