Default IMG friendly prelim years

Hi everyone!

Sorry if this question is too easy but it has been puzzling me for a while and this is the first time I apply!

I am only applying for radiology residency this year and therefore I need to apply for preliminary programs.

I have heard transitional years are too hard to get and surgery is too hard so I hope to just apply for medicine as a prelim year.

What ressources do you use to find out if the prelim programs are IMG friendly and how many programs should you apply too?

Step 1: 222
Step 2CK: 250
Step2CS: pass
All first attempt. Need visa.

Any help much appreciated!
