I am not sure what is the type of the data in the image. If it is an
image of CD, then you can convert .bin+.cue to .iso and mount .iso
(if you do not have .cue you can easily create it).
Search for `bin cue iso' for more information.

If it is an image of a hard drive partition, then the file system is
not iso, so you may try mount to guess it or use some likely types.

If it is an image of whole hard drive, then you may try to mount the
image to a loop device (search for `losetup'), and inspect its
partition table with, say, cfdisk or sfdisk. Once you found offset of
the partition you want, you can put it on loop (-o offset in losetup)
and mount it.
