Doctors usually look for stomach through a flexible tube like device whose one end is fitted with a camera ( endoscope, for stomach the endoscope is called as Gastroscope )...and the other end is connected to computer, so that it can be viewed on a monitor which gives an enlarged view....... and stomach ulcers can also be detected through history of the patient ( like patient feels pain soon after consuming food and relieves when stomach is empty )
