To do that, you need to modify the code in the class GateAnalysis.
You can check what it is done for compton and rayleigh scattering in the 
method RecordEndOfEvent(const G4Event* event).
Following this example, you could try to upgrade the code to get 
bremsstrahlung photon informations.

Hope this help
