Sections

The stomach is divided into four sections, each of which has different cells and functions. The sections are:

Cardia Where the contents of the oesophagus empty into the stomach.
Fundus Formed by the upper curvature of the organ.
Body or Corpus The main, central region.
Pylorus The lower section of the organ that facilitates emptying the contents into the small intestine.
