This paper presents the 2D, 3D absorbed dose distributions and isodose distributions obtained by the isodensitometric method for the determination of radiation field characteristics used together with sundries filters, in mammography. Thus the next filters: Cu (copper), Al (aluminum) and Th (thorium), with different thicknesses and having the role to attenuate the high energy photons were used. To obtain the dose distributions, the film densitometer from MULTIDATA System - USA, outfitted with RTD4 software -5.2 version, was used. Future experiments will include mammography investigations showing malign and benign tumors, and having blackening density values and tumor volume penumbra, will be made differentiations between both types of above mentioned tumors.
