Yes, perfectly possible. Read your MailScanner.conf file and you will 
find these. They are most useful with rulesets, so that you switch it on 
and off for different people, and choose different images for different 
people. My default HTML signature for mail sent within my department 
contains an image of my real signature (well, nearly my signature, but 
no use for signing checks as me). If you don't know about rulesets, read 
/etc/MailScanner/rules/* and the docs on the website and on the wiki and 
in the book.

# If you are using HTML signatures, you can embed an image in the signature.
# For the filename(s) of the image, see the settings "Signature Image
# Filename" and "Signature Image <img> Filename".
# This can also be the filename of a ruleset.
Attach Image To Signature = no

# Normally, you would only want to attach the image to messages with an
# HTML part, as plain text messages clearly cannot display an image.
# However, if you find some other use for this feature, you may want to
# attach an image to a message which is just text.
# This can also be the filename of a ruleset.
Attach Image To HTML Message Only = yes

# When using an image in the signature, there are 2 filenames which need
# to be set. The first is the location in this server's filesystem of the
# image file itself. The second is the name of the image as it is stored in
# the attachment. The HTML version of the signature will refer to this
# second name in the HTML <img> tag.
# Note: the filename extension will be used as the MIME subtype, so a GIF
# image must end in ".gif" for example. (.jpg ==> "jpeg" as a special case)
Signature Image Filename = %report-dir%/sig.jpg
Signature Image <img> Filename = signature.jpg
