Prior Hx of Pneumothorax

In the past, a one time CXR, PA & Lat screening study and exam was all that was required in a pt with no pre-existing lung pathology, who sustained one pneumothorax from trauma, which was small, and which spontaneously resolved within a few months. Is anyone aware of any changes to these recommendations?

Sometimes high definitiion lung CT is usefull detecting little bullae that cannot be seen on CXR. Also I ask a spirometry.
