Dear David:

    Reality Networks, Inc. a Delaware corporation ("Seller"), is pleased to present this Letter of Intent pursuant to which Seller will execute a share-for-share exchange agreement with Dicom Imaging Systems, Inc., a Nevada corporation ("Buyer"; the "Transaction") whereby, among other things, all of Seller's capital stock and other securities convertible or otherwise exchangeable into Seller's capital stock will be exchanged for certain shares of Buyer's common stock. Seller and Buyer may be referred to herein individually as the "Company," and collectively as the "Companies."

    This letter reflects in general our current understanding and of course, except as expressly set forth herein, is not intended to be a binding agreement between us. There shall be no obligations whatsoever based on such things as parol evidence, extended negotiations, "handshakes," oral understandings, or courses of conduct (including reliance and changes of position). The purpose of this letter is to set forth those points upon which we have agreed in principle and to confirm our joint intentions with respect to the Transaction.

    In connection with the consummation of the Transaction contemplated by this Letter of Intent, Buyer and Seller shall perform a share-for-share exchange, principally described as follows:

1.
The Share Exchange.

1.1
Prior to the closing date of the Transaction, Buyer will effect a reverse stock split so that all issued and outstanding common stock of Buyer equals 1,000,000 shares of Common Stock. On the closing date of the Transaction (the "Closing Date"), Buyer shall issue to the shareholders of Seller (the "Seller's Shareholders") an aggregate of approximately 9,000,000 million shares of the common stock of Buyer (the "Shares"). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if immediately following the closing of the Transaction (the "Closing") the aggregate percentage ownership of outstanding shares of Common Stock of Buyer owned by the Seller's Shareholders is less than 90% (which amount represents the target percentage ownership of Buyer by the Seller's Shareholders immediately following the Closing), then Buyer will issue to the Seller's Shareholders that additional number of shares of Common Stock of Buyer to increase the percentage ownership of the Seller's Shareholders to 90%. The shares of Common Stock of Buyer to be issued to the Seller's Shareholders pursuant to this paragraph 1.1 shall be distributed to each of Seller's Shareholder on a pro rata basis according to that Seller's Shareholder's percentage ownership of shares of common stock of Buyer.

1.2
In the event the closing price of Buyer's Common Stock on the Over-the-Counter Electronic Bulletin Board equals or exceeds $0.50 per share at any time on or prior to the closing, then Buyer may terminate this Transaction without liability to Seller or any of its officers, directors,

      shareholders, agents, or any other party associated with the preparation, negotiation and contemplated closing of the Transaction.

2.
Conditions to Closing of Transaction.

    Buyer and Seller understand and agree that consummation of the above-described Transaction is subject to the following:

    2.1
    The approval of the transaction by the Board of Directors and Shareholders of Buyer and Seller.

    2.2
    The ownership by Buyer at closing of the assets of Seller, which shall be free and clear of any and all liens and/or encumbrances, except as otherwise agreed to between Buyer and Seller.

    2.3
    The preparation, negotiation, execution and delivery of a Share Exchange Agreement satisfactory to Buyer and Seller, which shall contain all representations, conditions, covenants and agreements customary for a transaction of this nature described herein and shall provide for obtaining all requisite corporate and other consents and approvals.

    2.4
    The satisfactory completion of a review and investigation by Buyer and Seller, their counsel and agents, of the business, assets, financial condition and prospects of Buyer and Seller.

    2.5
    The form of the transaction and the documentation and agreements entered into in connection with the transaction contemplated herein being in form and substance satisfactory to Buyer and Seller (the "Definitive Agreements").

3.
