    The alternate pathway is nearly dead anyways. It was originally designed to increase the number of diagnostic radiologists because there was a shortage of people to read films in the 90s and early 2000s.

    But to answer your question: It will be impossible to get board certification in IR through any sort of alternate pathway. You will have to complete an IR/DR residency or a DR residency and then an IR independent fellowship.
