Active scanning of APs

Hello everyone,
About active scanning: Can the STA send data packets through the active
scanning? In other words, through the active scanning the STA needs to
check every channel by sending "probe request" and waits for an
AP-response for determined time to decide leaving this channel and
checking the next one. So, is it possible, that the STA can do this
parallel with data transmitting on the associated channel?
What I read in the standard 802.11 explain only the active scanning
process. In comparison to the WLAN-Functionality it wouldn't be possible
that the STA can transmit data through the checking of other channels by
active scanning process, but I'm still not sure. Do any body have
something about to tell?
Thanks in advance,
