you can use the HTML meta tags to indicate to the client not to cache the page.

EG.

<meta http-equiv="Expires" content="Mon, 01 May 2000 13:59:27 GMT">
<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache">
<meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache">

However this method is not reliable in all cases since older versions of IE dont always understand this tag properly.

A better way would to to draw the image from an HTML form using either the GET or POST method. That way the page will be reloaded every time the user requests it.

Also you can use cookies to force a page to be refreshed on every re load.

i think in this case the meta tags should be able to solve your problem, especially since your image script is being called via an HTML form.
