To check if you have installed a specific toolbox, you can use the existing function in FileExchange called isToolboxAvailable . The usage is as follows:
result = isToolboxAvailable('image processing toolbox','error');

This file exchange submission appears to be a quite comprehensive solution to this problem:
It checks both whether a toolbox is installed and whether a license is available. Works for lists of toolboxes as well.

In the unit test framwork TTEST is an experimentally function available EXPECT_TOOLBOX, which checks the availability of toolboxes. Its usage is quite straightforward, for some toolboxes are even hardcoded shortcuts possible, e.g.:
checks whether the parallel toolbox is installed and licenced.
For toolboxes with no shortcuts yet, one has to give the exact toolbox name, e.g.:
But, the function is still experimental.
