Side Menu, Put Images With Buttons

I have a side menu populated with an ion-list, I have a little SVG image that can go with each element in the list. But I don’t know how to include this with the HTML without ruining the formatting and alignment of the text?

  <button menuClose ion-item *ngFor="let p of items_array" (click)="selectItem(p)">
    {{p | capitalize}}

I really appreciate the help!

For this, you can use the ion-avatar or ion-thumbnail

Thanks for the reply.
Is there any way to adjust the size of ion-thumbnail? Ideally I want the thumbnail to be the same size as a standard icon.
