During the 20th century with emerging technological advancements including the development of fluoroscopy, radiography, and electrocardiography, physicians used these tools in patients with acute or chronic pericarditis with or without pericardial effusion to identify signs eponymously named to honor the person who first discovered, described, and reported the discovery. Hence, through meticulous observations, these signs complimented other findings found on physical examination to further assist in supporting the diagnosis of pericardial disease.
