Noone has yet mentioned wrapfig:

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/ 

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,
