To optimize the information from individual radio source observations of the sky covering large elongations, we have developed a Computer-Assisted Tomography (CAT) program. We fit STELab (Nagoya University, Japan) interplanetary scintillation (IPS) observations to a time-dependent, three-dimensional heliospheric model. These observations allow us to create "sky maps" covering 10 to 80 degrees in elongation, in which we can track CMEs observed earlier in LASCO coronagraph images. These events have approximately the same shapes and extents as observed closer to the Sun. Here we map several CMEs in 3-dimensions as they move outward to 1 AU. Masses for each of the events are determined from the reconstruction analysis and are compared with plane of the sky masses obtained from calibrated LASCO coronagraph images.
