This paper investigates the relationship of hospital profits from CT scanning and its schedule administration for scheduled patients. A stochastic model is constructed to describe the dynamics of patient arrival and the scanner's service. Hospital profits are calculated from the service charges, subtracting the possible loss due to withdrawal of discouraged patients. Hospital expenses for hardware and personnel are fixed, and hence are not taken into consideration
