editing rasters with vector overlay

Do any of you know of a plugin or other software package that allows the editing on rasters while viewing vectors? I use photoshop because of the wide selection of tools available to edit my images but they need to line up with a CAD drawing so I have to edit the raster, then bring it up in a software package that allows both the display of rasters and vectors.
Any ideas?

Thanks

Can you convert the CAD file to EPS?
Unless you want to edit the CAD file after you've edited the image in Photoshop there's no need for a program that displays both raster and vector. You won't be able to resize the CAD part as you would with a vector file because you would then lose the alignment of the raster image.
If you really need a program to display both, then Illustrator is the answer: it can import both the Photoshop and the CAD files.
