Yes. And in the same way as pdftex. But you will need 

*  \directlua{tex.enableprimitives('', tex.extraprimitives())} if you need pdf
  (otherwise  \pdfoutput is not defined).
* to make sure your (input) file encoding is UTF-8.

Last time I checked, luatex even supported PK files in pdf mode  (but that was two years ago).

You could also have just tried yourself, you know ;)

Best wishes,
