Given a knot K in the 3-sphere, we use Heegaard Floer d-invariants to give lower bounds on the first Betti number of a non-orientable surface in the 4-ball with boundary K, strengthening earlier work of Batson. An amusing feature of our bound is its superadditivity with respect to connected sums. This is joint work with Marco Marengon.
