I doubt that you can do that in plain metapost (maybe I'm wrong), but
you can use metafun.
\startMPpage % or \startMPcode
externalfigure "filename.png" xyscaled (300,200);
% normal metapost code goes here
\stopMPpage % or \stopMPcode
which has to be compiled with "texexec filename". See metafun manual
for more details:
