Create questions containing images using REST API

Hi, folks! I need to insert questions that contain images in the Canvas LMS using its Rest API. I tried to use inlined images, encoded in Base64, inside HTML passed by the parameter 'question_text', but Canvas eliminates the image from the question text during the creation operation. I think it's an LMS security constraint. Please, could someone help me find a way to create questions that contain images using the Canvas API?

I just successfully created a question using the rest api (specifically, using the canvasapi python repo) with an image by including `<img src="a-url-to-an-externally-hosted-image">` as part of the `question_text` field.
