I currently have three strong letters from an academic institution but all diagnostic radiology. I do have some other letters from a community setting, however, the letters are not as strong but from other fields (internal medicine/surgery). Would I be hurt in submitting my three strongest letters, even if they are all in diagnostic radiology?

I wouldn't recommend submitting 3 rads letters as most programs are going to want to have some sort of insight into how you did working on a team in a clinical setting. I seem to remember a fair number of programs requesting no more than 1-2 rads letters anyways. And this should go without saying, but you can absolutely not submit 3 rads letters for your TY/prelim programs.
