you can't.
Because USA doesn't recognizes Indian PG.
As you doing Usmle steps, after that go for residency program and then fellowship.
Residency and Fellowship from US are recognized in India.

Default Hi

Your step 1 score is average, get good step 2 score. Most radiology programs are advanced programs. So first you have to do prelim or transition year. Then radiology residency and then fellowship.

Good publications are important. If you have experience in UK it is plus point.Where you did radiology in India also counts. As AIIMS ,PGI few PD's know so you have better chances.

Direct fellowships are rare but not impossible. But you can never practice in USA.

That is all I know search other sites and see credentials of people who applied last year.

According to NRMP for radiology step 1 and 2 should be above 230.
