Ultrasound of abdomen showed 1.2cm dark spot in the right lobe of liver. CT scan done without contrast, inconclusive. Do I need a CT with contrast?

In brief: It depends

what kind of "dark spot" it is.
If it is a benign cyst, nothing more may need to be done. If it is indeterminate, you may need a contrast enhanced ct or mri for further evaluation.
