Higher Resolution Timing

I have used the following pattern in past projects to determine the time required until a condition is met:

start_time = Now()
while condition_state <> true
    if (time_difference(start_time,Now()) > timeout) then exitloop
endwhile
end_time = Now()

TestResult = time_difference(start_time, end_time)

However, since Datetime operates on intervals of 1 second (I think), that is the maximum resolution I can achieve.  Does anyone know a relatively simple method to time events at a higher resolution?

Thanks,
Louis
