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');

Since R2006a you can use
result = license('test','image processing toolbox')
making isToolboxAvailable somewhat redundant.
