How to reload aiImage?

Unlike the maya texture file node there does not seem to be a reload image option when you right click? Is there any benefit to using this over the maya default file node? How does it update if I re-save the texture from photshop/substance. Reason I'm using this node is simply I have been trying to use as many of the arnold nodes as I could to learn what they can do.

Maya default node is translated to an aiImage, so there's no diff

If you change the original texture, the tx file is re-generated

Arnold uses tx files, and MtoA automatically converts jpg/exr/tif/png to tx
