Hi,
You can use the above macro or, you can take inspiration from the web part itself - \CMS\CMSWebParts\Text\editableimage.ascx.cs and check the code of the LoadContent method:

 public override void LoadContent(string content, bool forceReload)
{
    if (!StopProcessing)
    {
        ucEditableImage.LoadContent(content, forceReload);

        if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(ucEditableImage.DefaultImage))
        {
            // Default image defined => content is not empty
            EmptyContent = false;
        }
    }
}

Which is also calling the LoadContent method (CMS.Controls.CMSEditableImage.LoadContent(System.String, [System.Boolean])).

You can try:

CMS.MacroEngine.MacroResolver.Resolve("{% CurrentDocument.DocumentContent.myImage %}");

Where "myImage" is the CMSEditableImage webpart ID.
