No need: CT of the chest, because of the way the images are obtained, does not confuse skin lesions with possible lung nodules as can happen with plain chest xray. If the Chest CT is being repeated due to worry about whether a 2mm nodule in the lungs might be a skin lesion then there is no need to repeat it.
