Mounting/examining dd image?

I was trying to transplant my system from a small, old drive to a big,
new one.  I made a dd dump of the entire small drive, but then I
accidentally destroyed the drive (be careful with bare drives and
metal PC cases...)

Anyway, I have the dd file but I don't have a spare drive onto which
to copy it.  Is there a way to read its contents/mount it/explore
it/hopefully extract files from it on a running system?
