I am running Terminal Services/Remote Desktop Services 2008 R2. Is it possible to have locally attached scanners work with clients running RDP. In particular, Fujitsu Scansnaps?

I would doubt it. Imaging devices dont typically translate through RDP. What sort of clients? PC's or thins?

Specifically there is this note I found with the Scansnap from Fujitsu which indicated that it does not support Twain nor Isis but has it's own client program  - Scansnap Manager.

"Operations using Terminal Service Client and Remote Desktop Connection Client
services are not guaranteed."

I am used to reading cautions like this and having things work flawlessly anyway or with a little tweak. So I am hoping someone at Experts has worked with this. It doesn't sound like you have had much experience with this so if you don't mind I would like to ask additional experts in or close this and repost.

This product supports scanning via TS but doesn't support the SnapScan as it isn't TWAIN or WIA compliant:
