Default Radiology externship vs observership - what's the difference

I'm interested in getting a radiology residency. I have experience in radiology research in a university here in California, and published some work, but I want to get some clinical experience to get US LORs for the applications.

Is speciality-specific LORs really important, particularly when it comes to Radiology, because I don't know if there's a difference between an observership and externship in radiology.

Anyone have experience or input on this? Thanks.
