A thyroid scan gives info about metabolic activity in the thyroid gland.
Almost any doctor involved in general medical care would be able to order this test if the patients history or physical findings supported the need. Depending on test results you may require follow up with an endocrinologist or a surgeon.

Any type of doctor who feels a patient has a thyroid issue orders the scan.
Usually, nuclear medicine physicians perform the test. The typical order for thyroid tests come from family doctors, internists, endocrinologists, surgeons and others.
