Answer Wiki:
Generally and in most of the cases manual option is preferred.Autoforward is a configuration in modalities which facilitate the automatic tranfer of images to the desired DICOM destination once the technician completes the study.In real life technologists may not want to send the complete study to the PACS or they may want to add another series which could be for example a series containing lung window or bone window of acquired study.Many times patient dont coperate and you have to abort the study and that study also get transferred to the PACS which could add unnecessary administration work so because of these reasons facilities prefer to go for Manual configuration.Manual confiuguration also allow technicians to use the modality workstation to do the quality control on the images.
