Dr. Jones is interested in expanding his practice by adding a piece of radiology equipment. The basic cost of the equipment would be $79,000 for the first year. The monthly loan cost for this equipment is $1,564.29 for five years. Additionally, Dr. Jones must factor in the cost to hire a radiology tech with a predicted $39,600 annual salary (this includes all taxes and fringe benefits). The office already has a radiology room, so there are no fixed costs associated with this purchase.
