This work presents a technique for localising the endpoints of the lines of response in a PET scanner based on a continuous cylindrical shell scintillator. The technique is demonstrated by applying it to a simulation of a sensitivity-optimised continuous cylindrical shell PET system using two novel scintillator materials - a transparent ceramic garnet, GLuGAG:Ce, and a LuF$_3$:Ce-polystyrene nanocomposite. Error distributions for the endpoints of the lines of response in the axial, tangential and radial dimension as well as overall endpoint spatial error are calculated for three source positions; the resultant distribution of error in the placement of the lines of response is also estimated.
