The numerical demonstration of the phase-space tomographic reconstruction method of non-separable beams is presented in this contribution. The Wigner distribution of a Laguerre-Gaussian beam is recovered from numerically simulated intensity measurements. In order to compare the results with the theoretical Wigner distribution; a novel diagram for the representation of functions of four variables is introduced.
