    Yes--by way of the Android SDK's Android Virtual Device (AVD) [i.e., it's an emulated Android environment].

    You'd basically have to take the constituent parts of the Nandroid backup and provide them to the emulator.

    Your best bet for details re. this would be to follow the links/sites returned from a search for "android run rom on android virtual device" [there's tons of details with respect to how to do this--you only asked "is there a way" ;) :p].
