Using variables as image names

My site has 20 fixed pages. I would like to use different images with the name of each page instead of the post headline.

Because I will be forced to make a call for each image in each post, I am looking to hardcode the line of code.

Is it possible to use a variable in the image call, lets say bfa_post_headline, so the call will be something like:
<img src=" $bfa_post_headline" ".jpg">

If you are going to edit the theme code, then yes however you have to make sure to escape in and out of php to use the variable name and may need to use the 'echo' command

or you could use CSS to hide the title and just add the image as the top of the post...

Thank you juggledad.

As my knowledge on CSS is very limited, can you give an example of how to accomplish the task?
