Thyroid: I am not sure what you are meaning exactly. You can measure thyroid hormone through blood tests and various ways. You can also use ultrasound to look at the thyroid itself. It would be possible to have no thyroid tissue left via various methods including surgery and medical treatment for thyroid diseases.
