RAW images as virtual hdd?

I’m storing my backups on btrfs volume so im-using Raw copy-on-write file format for image backups. I know i can mount btrfs volumes and access content of image, but i would like to run (boot) raw image as virtual pc (like vhd image), so in case of disaster I can run services in that image backup. Is there way to do this or I’m better with using vhd format for image backups ? Should I use vhd format on btrfs ?

Thank you
