Clinical Lab Science project

help me write  about thyroid function testing. With focusing on the following topics:

1. Introduction.

2. Preanalysis phase

3. Analysis phase

4. Post analysis phase.

5. Methodologies of all the testing machines and instruments used.

6. Analysis of literature.

7. Conclusion, recommendations, appendices.

Thesis Statement: Thyroid function testing is critical in identifying abnormalities in the function of the thyroid gland.  New tests, such as those for free hormones and high sensitivity TSH have changed the ordering pattern that physicians use.
