Can you understand The Dark Knight without watching Batman Begins?

It would make more sense to see the movie with the origin story for Batman first. The Scarecrow has a cameo at the beginning of the second film, so the viewer would be more familiar with what is going on if they had already seen him as an important character in the first film. The film is probably able to be followed okay by itself, but it is a sequel expecting the viewer to already have seen the original.
