This part of DIN EN ISO 18589 series specifies method specific to the measurement of gamma-emitting radionuclides using gamma spectrometry. This non destructive method, applicable to large volume samples up to about 3_000 cm<(hoch)3> covers the determination in a single measurement of all the gamma emitters present for which the photon energy is between 5 keV to 3 MeV.
