An efficient method for accurately calculating the center-of-rotation, or projection center, for parallel computed tomography projection data, or sinograms, is described. This method uses all the data in the sinogram to estimate the center by a least-squares technique and requires no previous calibration scan. The method also finds the object's center-of-mass without reconstructing its image. Since the method uses the measured data, it is sensitive to noise in the measurements, but that sensitivity is relatively small compared to other techniques. Examples of its use on simulated and actual data are included. For fan-beam data over 360°, two related methods are described to find the center in the presence or absence of a midline offset
