How to show kernel version in android pre-built image via shell?

Hi there,

it's a kernel image in android source:
android source/device/ti/panda/kernel
how can i see the kernel version without boot-up?
i tried
$file ./device/ti/panda/kernel
./device/ti/panda/kernel: data
is there another way to do this?
