Warped rotor - determining which one

Does anyone have a simple way of figuring out which rotor is causing brake pulsing, short of taking each rotor off and checking each?

I had a drivers side rear warped rotor. It was so minor the only way to prove was with a dial gauge. Didn't even show up with the old holding a screw driver beside it and rotating the rotor.

I've never changed one rotor, seems like that's something you should do in pairs.

Changing just one rotor, that's kinda like playing craps with your life. Not something I'd suggest.
