The recommended size of images to be used with RadMenu is 16x16px. However, I tested using images with size 24x24, but I was not able to reproduce the issue you are facing.
Attached is a sample page with RadMenu using 24x24 image size. Please let me know what I am missing in order to observe the problem.
