This is Dr. David
I am a cancer doctor.
reticular nodular changes in the mid and lower lung lobes can also come from you not taking a deep enough breath during the CT scan.
this can cause atalectasis changes or areas of collapsed lung in your mid and lower lung fields seen on CT scan
having obesity or increased abdominal girth can in some patients cause them to not be able to take a large breath and can cause these changes in the lungs.
if you have your full chest CT scan report, you can upload it here, I would be happy to review it with you online here
let me know if you have other questions.
