Need a geoprocessing tool that can find all DTED tiles that intersect an AOI

Does a geoprocessing tool exist that can find all DTED tiles that intersect an AOI (or Polygon feature class)? I have a area of interest represented by a polygon and DTED tiles (some of which intersect with the AOI). Is there a tool that I can use to find which tiles intersect? Thanks!

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding the question but could Select By Location not solve this?

Select all DTED tiles that intersect with the AOI layer?

@GeoffAppleby I did look into the Select By Location tool.  However I must not be using it correctly because it only displayed as "selected" the one layer that I indicated as input.  It didn't select any overlapping rasters (which is what I would need).  Somehow I don't think that this is the kind of selection that I need in this case.  Thanks so much for your suggestion though.

If you create a Mosaic Dataset, you can than use the included Footprint layer of the Mosaic to find out which DTED tiles intersect your AOI.

Ahhhh, apologies. I didn't make the connection that it was raster data you were working with.

Sounds like mboeringa2010 has the answer though!

Evidently there is no tool that can find all tiles that intersect an AOI.  The answer lies in creating a Python script from my C# code that does this.
