USB scanner under Virtualbox

In the next few days, I shall be moving from Windows XP + FreeBSD to FreeBSD 10.2 amd64 with XP running under Virtualbox. I have a USB scanner (Canon MG2470 All In One printer, which I use purely as a scanner) which is software-triggered - the software is for Windows only. What are the chances that I will be able to get the scanner to work under Virtualbox XP?

For me this has major implications. If the scanner won't work under Virtualbox, I might like to use MBR partitioning with Windows XP running as a full OS.

Thanks for any help.
