The results of numerical calculating the Lindhard-Sorensen correction in the point nucleus approximation and the total Mott-Bloch correction to the Bethe stopping formula, as well as the difference between the Lindhard-Sorensen and Bloch corrections and the Mott correction, which was obtained by some rigorous and approximate methods, are compared for the ranges of a gamma factor of approximately from 1 to 10 and the ion nuclear charge number Z from 6 to 114. It is shown that the accurate calculation of the Mott-Bloch corrections based on the Mott exact cross section using a method previously proposed by one of the authors gives excellent agreement between its values and the values of the Lindhard-Sorensen corrections in the gamma and Z ranges under consideration. In addition, it is demonstrated that the results of stopping power calculations obtained by the two above-mentioned rigorous methods coincide with each other up to the seventh significant digit and provide the best agreement with experimental data in contrast with the results of some approximate methods, such as the methods of Ahlen, Jackson-McCarthy, etc.
