We study a method for introducing the general solution of the two-dimensional Electrical Impedance Equation, based onto Quaternionic Analysis and Pseudoanalytic Function Theory, for the case when the electrical conductivity can be represented as a separable-variables function only once derivable. We also discuss the contribution of this results into the field of Electrical Impedance Tomography.
