We find an integral transform realizing the connection between the s-parameterized quasidistributions of a quantum state and its corresponding tomogram, which looks like a Radon transform. We show that the kernel of the new Radon transform is a Gaussian function with s-parameterized dispersion. It can be considered as a broadened delta-function appeared in the standard Radon transform.
