Cedars-Sinai Surgeon Uses Modern Technology to Solve Prehistoric Mystery of Saber-Toothed Cats

But examining the hip joint of an animal extinct for more than 12,000 years presented an entirely new challenge—and shed light on a long-running debate within paleontology about saber-toothed cats. Klapper is working with the paleontologists at the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum to unravel the mystery of how these giant cats lived and roamed. Using Cedars-Sinai’s most advanced CT scan machines, Klapper studied the pelvis and femurs of an extinct cat.
