A tomograph is a panoramic x-ray of your mouth+teeth

Palpation is just "feeling", so she just put her fingers on my jawmuscles (masseter+temporalis muscle primarily) and tried to feel wheiter they're tense or relaxed

a panoramic xray just shows your teeth and mouth [they usually do these to check on your wisdom teeth] whereas a tomogram [xray] shows the actual TMJs - the condyle, fossa, etc.
