I think its impossible.
In reverse direction it is widely used by scanners developers.
But client-side capabilities dont allow you to use Drivers.

Maybe im wrong :)

There is a commercial SDK for that purpose:

I have another solution for you if you don't like TWAIN
you can create a simple desktop application (exp: Scan.exe) run in the client machine that has the scanner device,
then call this exe from your web page ,it will run on Client machine with all access to scanner driver, you can send parameter to the exe

the problem come when you want to save the scanned image to the server ??

if you inside a intranet you can directly let the exe save the image useing file share

if you work outside your network you can send your image to web service in your site and save it in your server
