I'm working with ColdFusion 9 and JQuery datatables.

I'm using the JQuery databasles server side data capability to page through large datasets.  I want to display images in one the fields of the dataset.  My images reside outside the webroot for security reasons.  

How can I pull the image from the location on the server drive to display in the table.  I know I could use cfimage except for the data be returned to the client is JSON.

Is there a way to temporarily load the image in the browser memory so that the img tag can access it?
