You already have two great qualifications, good scores and you do not need visa. The radiology residency in the US is becoming increasingly unpopular among american medical graduates because of concerns about the job market. You don't want to worry about ur scores or visa issues, that being said, your year of graduation may cause some problems. You profile is already good but you need some US clinical experience or radiology research in the US and getting LORs from US radiologists.

As said, IMGs have been getting a lot of interviews in radiology because AMGs are not filling these spots.
