The stomach anatomy starts from the gastroesophageal junction and the most proximal part of the stomach is called as cardia.
After which comes the body and distally lies the antrum and pylorus.
Imagine this to be a cross-section from the stomach wall, and the upper part being the inside of the stomach and the lower part being the outside of the stomach.
On the innermost aspect lies the epithelium, outside to which lies the lamina propria.
Muscularis mucosa is the layer which lies outside the lamina propria.
Then comes the submucosa. Muscularis propria is the layer which lies outside the submucosa. Outside to which lie the subserosa.
And the outermost aspect lies this layer called as serosa.
