The Scan Pulse is an Aeion ability in Metroid: Samus Returns. When used, it allows Samus to see new information on her Map and detect Fake Blocks. As with other Aeion abilities, using the Scan Pulse consumes Aeion. When used, Samus is enveloped in a blue orb and breakable walls, floors or blocks will begin flashing. This ability is somewhat similar to the Scan Visor and X-Ray Visor from the Prime Series, and the X-Ray Scope in Super Metroid.
