If you use #+caption:, then the image will be wrapped in a figure
environment when it is exported to latex.  See the Org manual at 12.6.5
"Images in LaTeX export."

Here is an example using the a dot source code block and the "new
exporter" which currently resides in contrib/.

#+name: fundamental-model
#+header: :exports results
#+header: :file fundamental-model.pdf
  graph G
        graph [margin="0.01"];
          d [label = "Dated event", shape ="box"];
          t [label = "Target event"];
          d -- t [label = "Association", dir = "both", len = 2];
          {rank=same; d t;}

#+CAPTION[The fundamental relationship of a chronological model]: *The fundamental relationship of a chronological model based on radiometric dating.*
#+ATTR_LaTeX: :options "width=232pt" :placement "[ht!]" :comment-include t
#+NAME: fig:fundamental
#+RESULTS: fundamental-model

If you use the "old exporter" (which I believe you are using), then you
will need to use LaTeX attributes different than those I've shown, but
you have these working already, so should be in good shape.  Also, the
#+caption: syntax is a bit different between the two exporters.  For the
old exporter, see the Org manual or
