Is it possible use a custom image as a checkbox or radio button? I'm thinking no, but I thought I'd double check in here. Something like the screenshot atttached.

It's not possible to add image to checkbox, but there could be few workarounds. Example:

You could put invisible checkbox over a image.

Border and background can be invisible but once checked  it can show cross over image.

The problem with that approach is that buttons don't actually have values so if you export the form data this information will be lost. Also, you can't use it in the rest of the file for other calculations (like a total score, for example), unless you write a script to examine the icon of each button, which is not that easy.

For values it is possible to use hidden form fields.
