The present invention is directed towards a system and a method for managing the modality worklist in medical diagnostic and imaging systems. The system includes a modality, a modality worklist server, a HIS/RIS server and a database system. The HIS/RIS server is queried by the modality worklist server for schedule of patients. Scanning protocol corresponding to schedule of each patient is identified by the modality worklist server by utilizing the protocol mappings stored in the database system. The identified scanning protocol is transferred to the modality for scanning purposes. The system automatically selects the scan protocol corresponding to a patient schedule thereby preventing the possibility of human errors.
