This research aimed to analyze the histopathology (tubular necrosis and proteinaceous casts) and renal function (SCr and BUN) differences of male Wistar strain white rats (Rattus norvegicus) after intravascular injection of iodinated contrast media Iohexol and Iopamidol. This research is an experimental laboratory with a post-test only control group design. Male Wistar rats that fit the criteria were divided into three groups by random sampling technique: Control (K), Treatment 1 (P1, Iohexol 350 mg iodine/mL), and Treatment 2 (P2, Iopamidol 370 mg iodine/mL). Iohexol and Iopamidol were injected at a dose of 1600 mg iodine/kg BW. The histopathology differences were observed under a light microscope with a magnification of 400x, which were analyzed semi-quantitatively through slides formed by the paraffin method and H&E staining. SCr and BUN levels were checked using an automatic analysis machine with blood samples taken through the cardiac ventricle. Kruskal-Wallis test (α= 0.05) on renal histopathology scores, both tubular necrosis and protein casts showed Asymp. Sig. value > 0.05, which means there is no significant difference between the groups (K, P1, and P2). Kruskal-Wallis test (α= 0.05) on SCr levels also showed the Asymp. Sig. value > 0.05 and One-Way ANOVA Comparative Test on BUN levels showed the Sig. value > 0.05 which means there is no significant difference in renal function between the groups. This study proved no difference in histopathology and renal function in Wistar rats after injection of iodinated contrast media Iohexol and Iopamidol.
