You can include images using HTML:
Icon = fullfile(matlabroot,'/toolbox/matlab/icons/matlabicon.gif');
IconURI = ['"file:/', strrep(Icon, '\', '/'), '"'];
uicontrol('Style', 'popupmenu', ...
'String', {'Hello', ['<html><img src=', IconURI, '> String']})

That's not right. Look at the code in comments. What you call contents is actually the index that is selected. To get the contents and index:
selectedIndex = get(handles.popup1, 'Value');
allContents = get(handles.popup1,'string');
selectedContents = allContents{selectedIndex};
