Maybe.  The device name under OS X can be found by running disktool -l
from the command line.  then the dev entry will be /dev/disk# where # is
the number you found running disktool.

Probably the easiest is to use "disktool -l" to determine the device
name of the cd (which should be automounted).  then do:
dd if=/dev/disk# of=image.iso

Replace the disk# with the proper disk name from disktool's output.
