It's actually quite common to get different reports from different times or even from the same MRI. There are several reasons for this including:

1. Different radiologists/surgeons will interpret MRI's differently. I remember a cervical MRI I had done where I got a report from both the radiologist and my spine surgeon doing a report on it. The radiologist said I had a massive annular tear in one of the discs while the spine surgeon didn't even mention a tear. So give the MRI to 5 doctors to interpret it, and you'll get some variations in their reports.

2. It's possible that the way you were laying was slightly different and spine MRI's mainly look at the soft tissue issues. This means the soft tissues may be laying slightly differently than the previous MRI you had done, or you may have new issues that have arisen.
