  8. estrogen receptor test
    test to determine whether hormonal treatment will be used in cancer treatment by measuring response of cancer to estrogen
  9. protein-bound iodine (PBI) test

    group of blood tests to determine thyroid hormone levels and diagnose disorders of the thyroid
  12. thyroid scan
    intravenous injection of radioactive substance for organ imaging to detect abnormalities in size, shape, location and function of thyroid gland
  13. thyroid stimulation test
    anterior pituitary throid-stimulating hormone (TSH) injected to determmine whether thyroid problems result from pituitary or thyroid dysfunction
  14. thyroid ultrasonography
