I have an ultrasound module that I need to use (not buying another) and was wondering if there is a way of using it with Arduino. No problem if not, as it has its own board and uses a serial connection.

Here is the datasheet:

It comes with its own board to drive it, and timing, then sends as serial message.

My only thought for linking into Arduino, is that I'm using the serial port for a touch screen and wondering if there would be a conflict (and the need to add an extra serial port pci card)

Yes, that should work quite nicely. They aren't very clear on whether it uses RS-232 voltages, which may require a simple interface, but if it connects directly to a stamp, it should be fine.
