You can just enter the URL to the php file but the return value can not be shown in the browser, not even when it is a picture. So you need to make the picture a 1X1 pixel-picture so it does not show.
If you want a new picture that you can't hardcode in advance to appear you have to use a frame.

I would think it would have to return an image, otherwise you'll get that broken link picture. if you make it 1x1 pixels, that would kind of hide it. I'm curious why you would want to call a php file from the src tag of an img? can you share anymore info?
to call the file, use
From the php manual of what button.php3 could look like:
3 Header("Content-type: image/gif");
4 $string=implode($argv," ");
5 $im = imagecreatefromgif("images/button1.gif");
6 $orange = ImageColorAllocate($im, 220, 210, 60);
7 $px = (imagesx($im)-7.5*strlen($string))/2;
8 ImageString ($im,3,$px,9,$string,$orange);
