Given below is a labeled diagram of the stomach to help you understand stomach anatomy. The stomach is divided into four parts. These include: Cardia refers to the section of the stomach that is located around the cardiac orifice. The lower esophageal sphincter lies at the junction where the esophagus meets the stomach.
Upper GI series: X-rays are taken of the esophagus, stomach, and upper part of the small intestine. Gastric emptying study: A test of how rapidly food passes through the stomach. The food is labeled with a chemical and viewed on a scanner.
The greater curvature lies on the left of the cardiac orifice, over the dome of the fundus, and along the left border of the stomach to the pylorus. The lesser curvature lies on the right. It runs from the cardiac orifice to the pylorus. The greater omentum and the lesser omentum divide the abdominal cavity into the greater sac and the lesser sac.
