[PLUG] Best tool to image a dynamic disk?

We have a couple of servers using dynamic disks with GUID partition tables. They hold mdadm volumes (linux software RAID).

A co-worker suggested making an image of the drives, to have something to start with in case of a major failure. We went to use a tool he's relied on called Paragon, which boots off a DVD into a Windows OS to perform the operation. But it cannot do dynamic disks.

Does anyone have a recommendation for the best tool to use to make images of the dynamic disks on our servers?
