Noone has yet mentioned wrapfig:

\usepackage{wrapfig}
...
\begin{wrapfigure}{r}{7cm}
\includegraphics{blah.png}
\caption{\label{fig:blah}Caption}
\end{wrapfigure}
Text goes here

That puts the included figure on the right of the page, in a box 7cm
wide, with the text flowing round it.  There's a variety of placement
options, covering left/right, inside/outside the margin, and here/
floating.

The documentation for the package is at the top and bottom of
wrapfig.sty (kpsewhich wrapfig.sty), but the above is just about all
you need.

I wouldn't guarantee that it works inside an itemised list, but given
how I recall the package is implemented, I wouldn't be at all surprised.

All the best,

Norman
