    Is this in order to create the detail component from the sketch?
    If so, you can use insert>image and pick your image from there. It can be in jpg, tiff, bmp or png I believe.

    I think you can if you take it into adobe illustrator and use the live trace command (but not totally sure) and then once converted to vectors, the file can then be exported to dwg format. but it might just be easier to trace. hth
