Once a dd image is made, do we still need the drive?

When attempting to recover partitions from a drive, if a DD image is made of the whole drive, do we need the physical drive?

Same question goes for file recovery: If we have a DD image of the whole drive, is there any benefit to keeping the physical drive intact?
