A method for obtaining data includes scanning an object with radiation to collect projection data using an imaging system having a detector array with detector cells and a post-patient collimator, wherein the post-patient collimator has plates having non-uniform thicknesses. The method further includes applying a correction to the projection data to shift an effective center of at least some of the detector cells to compensate for the non-uniform thicknesses of the collimator plates.
