AV Scans through a Write-Blocker
AFAIK, AV scanning should work because it does not involve writing to disk. Feel free to correct me anyone. AnirudhR

I've done this several times with a couple of AV programs, it works.

The only thing that will happen is that if your scan settings are such that the AV is instructed to clean or delete positive detections, then it will report that it is unable to do so because it has no write access.

Yeah, I also think that AV can work better. Even I tried this and it's effective. RafealHenco
