The modified Hankel transform arises naturally in connection with certain semigroup operations on measures in probability theory. We give a tauberian theorem for this transform when certain higher moments exist. The probabilistic significance of our result is that it translates a regularity condition on the transform into a direct condition on the measure. This complements earlier results by Pitman and Bingham for the trigonometric and the modified Hankel transform respectively.
