You can get the Raster definitions from the ACAD_IMAGE_DICT dictionary and use the Database.Purge() method to get the unreferenced ones.


Here's a little sample:


        public void Test()
            Document doc = AcAp.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument;
            Database db = doc.Database;
            Editor ed = doc.Editor;

            using (Database sideDb = new Database())
                sideDb.ReadDwgFile(@"C:\Temp\ImagesTest.dwg", System.IO.FileShare.ReadWrite, false, "");
                using (Transaction tr = sideDb.TransactionManager.StartTransaction())
                    DBDictionary NOD =
                        (DBDictionary)tr.GetObject(sideDb.NamedObjectsDictionaryId, OpenMode.ForRead);
                    if (NOD.Contains("ACAD_IMAGE_DICT"))
                        DBDictionary imgDict =
                            (DBDictionary)tr.GetObject((ObjectId)NOD["ACAD_IMAGE_DICT"], OpenMode.ForRead);
                        ObjectIdCollection ids = new ObjectIdCollection();
                        foreach (DBDictionaryEntry entry in imgDict)
                        foreach (DBDictionaryEntry entry in imgDict)
                            if (ids.Contains(entry.Value))
                                ed.WriteMessage("\n" + entry.Key);
