What's the best way to make a backup copy of my corrupted CF card?

I have 3 corrupted Sandisk compact flash cards. I'm 99% positive the problem was the camera filmware and, after an update, I've had no more problems. That said, I'm traveling and working, and I wont be able to try solving the problem of these cards till I'm done. I want to save the cards the best way possible, making a backup in case something happens to the physical card. I use a Mac. Would making a disc image of the cards work? Might another solution be better?

You could use Pro Rescue from SanDisk which may have come with the CF Card, it is amazing how it can Rescue accidentally deleted clips etc from both the CF card and Computer hard drive ?

You could download if no Rescue Disk is available ?
But, do NOT write over the corrupted cards, it may be the end.
