Reticular interstital pattern is one of the patterns of linear opacification in the lung. It can either mean a plain film or HRCT/CT feature. 

Pathology

Causes

Reticulation can be subdivided by the size of the intervening pulmonary lucency into fine, medium and course. Diseases with a predominantly reticular pattern can be subdivided by the acuteness of their presentation.
