The computer tomography device includes an X-ray source for emitting an X-ray beam and a detector system for measuring density profiles of cross-sections of an object. The detector system includes a two-dimensional matrix of detector elements. The detector elements positioned along a direction transversely of the cross-sections have the same effective surface and detector elements positioned parallel to the cross-sections have different effective surfaces. Furthermore, the computer tomography device includes an adjustable X-ray collimator for limiting the X-ray beam transversely of the cross-sections.
