Yeah you'll be fine. There's a huge number of programs in the area that you described, just apply broadly and you'll be fine.
Radiology isn't competitive to match somewhere but the competition at the top programs is very fierce.

I know you weren't being serious but I'll still address this.
Obviously a 260/3.9 is very competitive for radiology but at the very top programs that is run of the mill and you need other things to round out your app (solid research, strong performance on aways, good letters, big name school etc) to get a lot of love from the big names vs a smattering of invites.
